No, I just want to know how easy it is for people to do it. I dont need to know how to do it. Cause I want to know if someone is doing it or not. And I will most likely be able to know cause he isnt really good with computers.

If history is deleted, there is a good chance, index.dat files are left behind, unless someone is aware of them.
Those files will contain all browsing history.

Since you "just need to know", yes, you can find those files :)

your question depends on the knowledge level of the person looking, and the knowledge level of the person hiding

if it's the government that wants to know. then nothing you do is going to hide it (within reason)

on the other hand, if someone who is barely computer literate wants to to find out what's been going on, then almost anyone can hide their tracks
