Hi

Yesterday I had my ex-bf load a program for me. Before he did, I cleared my caches because I'd rather he did not see my internet history. He has been known to do some hacking.

After he was here, I checked my internet history, and found that he did a google search for "dumprep". Is this an indication that he may have run a program that can report my deleted history?

I do have a trust issue regarding his hacking. Please let me know what you think.

Thank you

The dumprep.exe process is used by Windows to create a report of errors as they occur in your system, as a text file. It will then prompt you to send this error dump file to Microsoft. This process can be terminated if you do not wish to send error reports to Microsoft.

dumprep.exe is flagged as a system process and does not appear to be a security risk. However, removing Dump Report Utility may adversly impact your system.

I realize this is a system utility, but could he have used this to generate a report of my deleted histories for himself?
Thank you for your reply
