Botnets are responsible for much of the online fraud, scams and hack attacks that we see today. Consisting of networks of hijacked computers, and remotely controlled by hackers, they’ve been around a while and they’re going to be around a while longer too. That said, it’s relatively easy to ensure your computer doesn’t become a ’slave’ device to a hacker’s plans.
Nothing is ever deleted on a computer. Even though delete functions exist the data still remains somewhere in the computer, whether on the hard drive or in obscure files tucked away deep in the operating system. Recovering deleted internet history is quite straightforward if you know what you’re doing. And if you do want to know what you’re doing, read on.
There are many reasons why you would want to recover deleted internet histories. These range from anxious parents worried about whether their children are visiting inappropriate websites or being sucked into some nefarious underworld, to simply wanting to recover the forgotten URL of a website you used which was useful, but you thought you’d never visit again, until you remembered it.

BUT, before you download anything, make sure you have BullGuard Internet Security on your computer, and BullGuard Mobile Security on your phone. And of course, only download apps and programs from reputable sites that you know. If anything seems amiss, or too good to be true, it probably is.
An internet browser is not only a tool for accessing all those websites out there. It should also provide some basic levels of security.

Or do you lean towards open source such as Firefox as way of sticking up a single finger to the proprietary browsers that, some argue, seek to dominate the browser industry? Or do you prefer the simplicity of Chrome, or even Opera the one that often sits below the radar?
We’ve all heard of cookies, not the sugary biscuit things that we munch on, but those little files that sit on our computers and identify us when we visit a website.
If you want to know what a cookie does then try deleting them from your computer. Simply go to ‘history’ in your browser and tick the ‘cookies’ box in the ‘clear browsing data’ section.
