Temporary Internet Files
I have used file recovery software to try and get to the bottom of some 'suspicious' Internet activity. I now have almost 8000 files of jibberish. HTML, xml, js, json, etc. I have been trying different programs to 'view' the files & they work, I mean to say I can open the file, but what I see is apparently in some other wordly script like a Roswell license plate. Is there anything I can do to get useable info from all this data? Plain English. Went to so&so site on so&so date. Used login id x, etc. I really need help. If my worst fears are true were talking divorce. If the bits & pieces I'm seeing are from popups in the history or something then I need advice. Please help!

    If you are trying to track what sites your husband is going to, check the Internet History. You can also install software that can log activity and give you a report.

    If you don't have the needed background knowledge, you can take the PC to some professional who knows what to do. It is practically impossible to teach enough t be certain of anything unless you have a few months to dedicate to study and practice. . Tom

    Sounds familiar. Yes those temp file can be a real pain. You can check browsing history or even check the "cookies" to see where someone has been. I had a friend who was suspicious of his wife. I installed a key logging app on their PC and showed him how to use it. He got a lot more than he bargained for. He captured every e-mail his wife was sending to her "friend" and all her "IM's". The PC was the household PC and shared by both so it was not an issue. If this is not your personal PC anything you find may not even help your case as it may be an invasion of privacy.
