    I had to reformat & re-install windows.
    I can't remember all (if any) the settings I changed to make my computer a little less likely to track/remember/store etc the places I been, stuff that has run.

    It was along the lines of;
    autocomplete = OFF
    NO LOGGING
    Something about swap files or page files....damn!
    Just stuff I picked up along the way & now I can't find the info on what to do or even HOW to do it (it is ok to laugh at me......I can take it)
    (I do use ccleaner,window washer,tracks eraser)

    THANKS to anyone & everyone that can help me
