It's common knowledge now that deleting Temp Internet files and Cookies does not permanently erase a PC's internet history. There are history eraser programs
on the market that overwrite/encrypt these things and the index.dat files. If you use one of these internet history erasers, can a PC's internet tracks still be retrieved from the dos prompt or some other way?

It can always be recovered even when you dont see it there. Trust me.

Overwriting a couple of times is pretty secure from software recovery, but there are other methods, available to law enforcement agencies that might recover them.
Please note that the software I recommend above is entirely based on only my own experience and testing. In no way should my comments,opinions and endorsements be construed as an endorsement by the forum, nor do they reflect the advise or recommendations by the experts or helpers at spywareinfo.
