Your ISP has to have logs of your activity, because all your internet connections are routed through them. It is not likely they or anyone else will examine these logs without a court order. Meanwhile, every ISP (webhost) of every site you have ever visited has your IP address and so does every server in between that was used to make the connection. Again, these records would not be casually obtained. The webmaster of the site you visited can usually tell what pages you visited, what site you came from, what your browser and OS is, your screen resolution, how long you spent on each page, and what you clicked on while you there. Bottom line: never assume anything on the internet is private or anonymous, but it is possible to be discreet.

Oh Sorry I was i little confused in explaining.

You cant ask your ISP to email you with YOUR internet History Logs. The closest you can come to see what gets sent to your ISP is the :

Traffic Logs in you Firewall.

Does That Make It A Little Clearer ? :tazz:

'Traffic Logs in you Firewall'

I do know thats all the programs and computers trying to get into your computer all outgoing and incoming connections but why does it store that?

Because a firewall's job is to monitor activity between the PC and the Internet?

because if you are doing something illegal..and you completely destroy your computer...the fbi has to have something to look at...plus....it's almost impossible not to have some form of history....it's how the internet works
