    I understand that everything you do on your computer is permanently stored to your harddrive (even though you have deleted everything in your recycle bin) and people who know what they are doing can retrieve all past emails, pics, websites visited, etc. When you use aol, hotmail, yahoo, gmail, etc. do those emails get permanently saved to your hardrive? If so, is there a program you can use to prevent your information from being stored or is there an email program that does not save emails to your hardrive?
    Also, what is the best program to use so that past information can be deleted from the harddrive?
    Thanks!
