    The Path: Users/PC/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/WebCache has several files, including text files that are somewhat readable. It appears that upon viewing, they show every file you visited on your computer, and most likely, every keystroke. An example is this:.....

    V i s i t e d : P C @ f i l e : / / / C : / G a m e s / W o r l d _ o f _ T a n k s / r e s _ m o d s / R T A N . x m l y u 1SPS¡ À F             @ Á¸.0’Ð S O 1SPS¡ À F

    I just pasted a minute fraction of one of the logs. Why does windows need to keep a file that shows everything I visit on my computer? Is this not a security risk if someone were to steal my laptop?

    How do I stop windows from generating these?

    Thanks [​IMG]
