    (I'm not sure if this goes here, but maybe I can get some help?)

    Ermm I'm not that great with computers but I pretty much know the basics. :hsugh: Anyway, I use Firefox on Windows Vista and up on the top you have that History feature that you can view all the sites you visited. However, under "Tools" you can clear the private data and all the History will go away. Well if I wanted to view the History still but somebody cleared it already, is there any way I could still go about doing that? If so, can you explain how?

    If you need me to explain it better, I can try. lol Thanks in advance. :)

    are you asking "how can I view the history if it's been deleted?"

    you can't, it's gone. you can install other software to keep track but just using regular methods........nope.

    let me resolve this for you. he's watching pr0n when you're not around.

    now what are you going to do about it?



    btw, is he just deleting the history or is he also deleting temp files, including cookies? if he's not deleting cookies then you can get a good idea where he's going by checking them out.

    I actually don't really mind if he's looking at porn. It might get me a little mad, but I can get over it. I just want to make sure that is ALL he's doing... and not trying to hook up with random girls on websites or anything to that extreme. lol So that's kind of why I want to check it out.

    I'll check out that website you provided. Thanks. I don't think he's deleting cookies, just using the History feature.

    honestly, using technical methods to figure out if your relationship is screwed up never works. if you can't trust someone, then what's the point?

    Well we have a child together, so I'm not going to break up with him over something suspicious over the internet. I mean if he did do something online, I'd like to talk about it and see why he did it. That way we can get through it. I trust him more offline (real life) than I do online. I don't think he'd ever sleep with anyone. Anyway, I do have trust issues (not just with him but with pretty much everyone) because I've been screwed over so many times and some things that has happened in my past. So even if we were to break up, I'd unfortunately would still have trust issues with the next person I would date. =/

    If I just wanted drama, I would have said why I was wanting to know how to view the History in my original post. Somebody asked a question and I answered it. :)

    lol

    I may have just been worried over nothing. I checked the cookies and didn't find anything bad. (Just normal sites that he and I usually go to)

    So later I asked him why he deleted the History. He said that he's been doing a disk clean-up (not sure if that is what it was... I asked this yesterday and I remember he said "disk" something lol) He said when he does that, it clears out the History. =/

    see, that's where you should've started instead of trying to sneak around checking up on him behind his back.

    Jeff Foxworthy once said "well, once you've seen one woman naked...you wanna see the rest of 'em naked too."

    Porn is a guy thing; it makes about as much sense as spending six hours shopping for the perfect shoes or gushing over pretty jewelry. As long as he isn't cheating on you, it's not worth worrying about; it doesn't mean he's not attracted to you, it doesn't mean you're not doing some kinky thing that he wishes you'd do (there are boundaries between what's okay to fantasize about and what's okay to do in real life), all it means is he has balls and they still have an adequate blood supply.

    if you read her post, she isn't really worried so much about porn as she is about online dating sites or something along those lines.

    Having done the online dating thing for a couple of months, I can safely say it's nothing like what it's made out to be. Let's put it this way: attractive women don't need to go on the internet to find boyfriends -- boyfriends find them in real life. As with porn, the attractive women you see in online dating ads are there because they're getting paid.

    If he was looking at online dating sites, her relationship is in absolutely no danger whatsoever; I'd be more worried about the porn.
