At our 1st Midlands LUG meeting one of the topics that arose was the secret
hidden files on MS OS's that stored records of every website visited and
every email sent or received, plus attachments--and stored this even after
you had deleted it, and even after disk formatting. A friend in Scotland
passed me on this excellent website, which includes how one can get rid of
It's followed by several long pages of discussion which has additional
technical info., including more details of the permutations in storage on
the various MS products.
This looks like current competent material; I'd like to know others think.
Also, aren't there EU laws protecting privacy? Why are there no legal
challenges to this carry-on? I remember there was a public outcry when the
Pentium III came out because of it's ability to track websites visited. It
seems that MS has been involved in even more devious tactics all along. Is
this something that we should look into?
