    I have a problem.....I have go-back drive available on my computer....but I do not want it to revert any of the internet sites or chats from the past. What can I do to make sure that no recovery of these sites/chats can be restored at a later date (either from Wildfire or any other recovery disc)? Thanks Dana Potter

    Hiya and Welcome

    I assume these chats are done via web sites. The best way to safeguard yourself if you don't want these ever to be recovered is to Wipe them.

    You won't be able to wipe direct from your Temperory Internet Folder. What you need to do, is go to Find Files and ensure that the Look In is set to your Tempory Internet Folders.

    Then type in *.jpg, *.gif, *.bmp, *.html, and anything else that is in there. Once they come up, you will be able to wipe. Use a 7DoD wipe.

    Best product is BCWipe from www.jetico.sci.fi/bcwipe.htm

    Regards
