There are hidden files named index.dat that will keep a history of where you've been on the net. There is a nice little free tool called Spider that allows you to see the contents and clean them if necessary.
Bryan i used spider but there was nothing there, i know every thing has been deleted and system restore has been used a few times. Ihave tryed an un delete program but the results were very poor. Any ideas on how to find it all? Thanks to all who have tryed to help.
Max19 i am looking for past internet use. I know nothing about computers but realise their complexities, which leads me to think that i must be able to find the information some where. Any ideas?Finding some of the information would be better than nothing. Thanks for checking in on my post again.
If the PCs hardrive was formatted and Windows was reinstalled, then your not going to find anything from the past. Unfortunately it's gone and you won't be successful recovering any of it at this point.
Bryan I am really going to show my ignorance now but is that what Windows system restore does, reformat the disk and reinstall Windows? All I know is that the things have been deleted in the ordinary Windows way and system restore has
been used a few times. Does that make it impossible to find?
