    History Kill

    Proported as an excellent method of 'covering your tracks', this program might well work for this purpose, however, I prefer to have this running to keep my system's performance at it's peak.

    How does it work? Every time you exit I.E., or NS, It deletes all cookies, all temp internet files, even rehashes your index.dat file.

    It's got a slew of other features as well, popup killer, as well as options for disabling portions of the history kill process.

    The software is good for a 30 day trial, but overall, i'd recommend it!

    You can find History Kill at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.historykill.com>www.historykill.com</A>

    Sometimes..

    Personally, I'd do without cookies if I could. There's nothing wrong with entering information again, it's the most secure method of online browsing.

    I have yet to play with TweakUI 2000... but I like the idea of starting fresh everytime... what with my limited hardware resources.. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    Re: History Kill

    ..are you saying that every time you come here (or to any other board) you don't mind having to type in your user name and password? What about the boards which have several subscriber only access forums? Do you re-enter your details every time? Seems a bit ott to me, but chacun a son gout or whatever...

    Re: History Kill

    Yep. I reenter my detials every time.

    Username, Pass, for each site that requires it.

    The reasons are simple.. I don't want anyone else putting my hat on for any period of time, so I feel better deleting all of this information as often as possible.

    But then, that's just me, and it is a matter of how comfortable you are... <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    this proggy cures that too, to a degree.. cleans the system every time you exit your browser..

    but we'll keep that mind... <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    it sure did..every dang username/password...also did some weird things to other parts of my winME !!!!! I was very careful as to what I had checked off for 'kill'.
    I uninstalled that puppy faster than than my hubby can use his remote on tv. <img src=/S/toilet.gif border=0 alt=toilet width=24 height=26>
    When I couldn't access my 2nd favorite site cuz my 'username/password' wasn't recognized...that means trouble as far as I am concerned.
    I will leave those programs alone...am just happy to be able to re-do what is needed easily - written sheet with data <img src=/S/clever.gif border=0 alt=clever width=15 height=15>

    Re: History Kill

    Every site that requires a username / password that I visit, I also re-enter the information everytime I visit. When complete, I hit the 'logoff'.

    At home I'm not to worried about it, but at work... well they're a whole bunch of crazy IT people...

    "written sheet with data" I keep mine in a speadsheet. My list soon got too big to search on paper and make changes all the time.

    I have no problems with usernames/passwords...my last reformat was March this year...then naturally I had to re-do all usernames/passwords...until History Kill <img src=/S/exclamation.gif border=0 alt=exclamation width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15> I use mostly 2 different usernames for all the sites needing one, so re-doing them wasn't a PIA. <img src=/S/rofl.gif border=0 alt=rofl width=15 height=15>

    To anybody who enters the logon details every time they access places that require them :
    have a look at this dinky little freeware applet. It may be just what you're looking for..
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.keywallet.com>KeyWallet.</A> Watch the animation carefully.

    btw Not all IT personnel are crazy. More than a few are nuts <img src=/S/nuts.gif border=0 alt=nuts width=15 height=15>.
