Browser History-This folder contains every url you have typed in the address bar or visited over a given period of time. This information leaves the biggest web tracks. So, you want to immediately eliminate it.
AutoComplete-This is an extension of your browser history. When you type in URLs in your web browser, previously entered urls will appear in the drop down box. This feature shows every place you’ve been on the net. You can delete individual entries or fully disable it using an auto erase history feature. I recommend the latter.

Choose the remember the password option and beware that anyone can see this from your browser.By learning how to delete PC internet files, you will become aware that passwords should be stored elsewhere not on your computer. You can protect them with a password in Firefox and Netscape, but IE and Chrome don’t offer this. Hmm…I wonder why?
COOKIES AND SECRET FILES
Cookies-there is certainly nothing sweet and tasty about this little fellow. Cookies identify you on certain web sites. Although some cookies can be useful, They majority act as tiny little covert spies, secretly watching your browsing activity. Declare war on this bastards as soon as possible.
Index.dat- Is an active folder used by Microsoft Window’s Internet Explorer. This data in this secret human-unreadable file keeps an active log of all the websites you have visited. This log contains urls and web quires recently opened files. This file is very difficult to delete. Performing standard Windows’ history delete will not eliminate this file. It is a secret file designed to avoid traditional cleaning methods. Index.dat also keeps a record of all email you have received through Outlook Express.
