    Google see's everything. Not kidding. Any files you have accessed are recorded. police have caught criminals that way. But if you just want to get the site off of your computer. Goto your file bar (top og the window) open tools, internet options, then delete cookies and delete files including all off line content. Then do a anti spy wear check with your antispywear. If you have windows then you can also set your computer back to a date before you accessed the site. Goto my computer to access this feature. Good luck.

    I'm curious evilive, you said Google has caught criminals that way? Could you point me to the link on that? I don't quite understand how that would work. I know they record everything, that's what Google does, but if I'm behind a firewall and me and 50,000 other people, probably over half of them have some IP blocker or are at work or a library, etc. (and esp. a criminal would probably go to a library, college, etc.) I don't see how they could find people. There's nowhere that they have you enter an address, unless they used google maps, that's the only thing I could think of.

    Go to your internet explorer icon on your desktop. right click it and go to properties. in there you can delete history, delete cookies, and delete temporary internet problems. Some internet versions are different.
