Re: Sites visited, history deleted.
Actually you can by using data recovery software there are a few of them on the market let me know if you are interested and I can recommend a few. the thing is you system keeps a files of all the logs pertaining to sites visited. these logs are kept primarily in the cookie files list and when you delete the hostory these some of these files are deleted, but can be recovered with data recovery software.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If want to see what's been viewed on a computer or if you want to find a website that you visited, but can't quite remember the name of, you'll need to check your computer's history and cookies folders.
These are where the information about a computer user's Internet whereabouts are kept.
Some people say these folders contain the user's "footprints."

What you want is a program that keeps track of websites visited, keystrokes entered, etc. There is a nice one at http://www.tueagles.com/anti-porn/ that has a 30 day trial. You can use it to block bad websites and even set up time blocks for when a child can use the internet. You can make it completely invisible. So in your case I wouldn't block any sites at first, just let it record where its been. Then you can see where your child has been and take appropriate actions.
