Hello. My level of security conscious user is "paranoid". I like to have absolute detection, protection and cleanup.

Is there a software that erases traces of my on-line/off-line activity? I used to have Evidence Eliminator. But I no longer use it. Is there anything similar available or should I just go back to using this software. Yes, I am clear about the danger of using such a thorogh erases, but thisis what I like. Can anyone comment and suggest?

Thank you

Short of low-level wiping the drive a good couple of times over (which with all these modern huge drives we have now, can easily take a few days), no software you use will completely overwrite everything on the drive. Of course this would trash everything so you'd have to reload operating systems and everything like that.

May I ask, why the paranoia?

Don't know. Just like this way. I don't even use password keeping software. The best place is my head and not some software that can be hijacked.

But I am more interested knowing where, would computer write data besides prefetch, etc. And where active cookies are on IE?

To say "All on harddrive" is quite general and not really answering my question. :) Just like to say that IE favorites are written on harddrive. :)

Can someone who knows please respond.
