    IExplorer Spies WinExplorer


    If you open "Run" and type in just an f , you'll see paths, apps and files you've clicked before, on your hard disk.
    This history cannot be deleted by common way (Folder options/General->Clear File Explorer history).

    You have to go to IExplorer and delete its History, even if you don't use it at all!!!

    What is responsible for this? Auto complete option on IE.

    You have to go to Internet options->Content tab/AutoComplete Settings and
    under Use AutoComplete for, uncheck Address bar. This will prevent IE spying user's activity.

    Why IExplorer "AutoComplete" option affects "Run" history???

    Viva Microsoft!!!

    Win (File) Explorer and IE always had same engine, that's why IE could never be deleted and taken out of the system all the way.
