Question about Dell Studio 15 Laptop

2 Answers

Our son installed google chrome on his computer. I understand you can run in stealth mode using this and we were wondering if there is any way to recover the areas he may have visited? We understand that in stealth mode, it's deleting cookies, etc but surely there must be a way to access things. Surely there are some computer experts out there who know a way.

    thanks MCL dude. Do you have to be logged into your google account (by google account do you mean gmail?) to use the browser?

Honest opinion:
If your son is computer savvy enough to install Google Chrome just to use it to thwart you, you will never be able to handle other countermeasures he may thow at you if you are having to ask this question. Not trying to be mean, just being a realist.

Best bet to make you happy: Take his computer away.

Theres a short vid on how to use "incognito mode" here:

...and from what im to understand, the only way to view the past history while in "incognito" mode is if the user was logged into their google account, which may have been the case. Alternatively you can try some 'history recovery' methods here: "" (minus quotes) which may help you. Hope this help :)

    ...yeah like ButtFuzz said, Incognito mode is also reffered to as "porn mode" by young people as stated on many forums, because it leaves absolutely no trace of where you've been due to the fact that it immediately deletes its own history after use... so there may be a good chance, unless someone in the family has a birthday coming up, that your child was on adault sites, just a thought. so use this info and your best judgement, that's all i can tell you.

    here's a quote from an Andrew.Osman from 'Google Chrome Help' that may help answer that question as i am not exactly sure because i dont have any need for incognito mode. "If you have a toolbar or are logged-into your google account and do
    some searching, then the GOOGLE WEBSITE will keep your history. So,
    how do you do "incognito" with the GOOGLE WEBSITE? Log out of your
    account! Disable the toolbar!" so it seems that you have to be logged in (yes, gmail is included) and do some searching on and it will still show up... I also found some info for you about how to view deleted history through forensics software... url is: "" in that they talk about PC Inspector which i have downloaded and use myself, its a free data recovery tool that should help you out. :)

Sounds like you might have a virus or infection. Boot up into safe mode and see if you can get into you email, then download and install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you internet connectivity) and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. Open your internet browser and see if you can get to your mail. Now download and install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.

Go to and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine.

If you use Internet Explorer as your internet browser try one of the others that are safer and much faster. In fact I have all of them on my system.

Try downloading Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Google Chrome. Unlike Internet Explorer they install in less than 5 minutes and they are faster and safer than Internet Explorer.

Go to and in the search box type: "Download Mozilla Firefox" (without the quotes). Download and Install Mozilla Firefox from Mozilla's website. Do the same thing for Opera and Google Chrome.

I've put the links of each one below so if you like you can just click on them to go to their site to do the download and install.

How do i get my computer to run in normal mode again? and how do I get rid of the google chrome because this problem didn't start until i downloaded it into my computer.

Once Safe Mode comes up, click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and select a Restore Point (date and time) that is before you downloaded and installed Google Chrome.

I seriously doubt that Google Chrome is your problem. Chrome is among the top tier as far as browsers go.

I think you've got a windows system file or boot file issue.

I am running windows xp at present. i want to run windows 2000 so i can also install google chrome in my computer. what will i do?

You don't need Windows 2000 to install Google Chrome. I am sure that Windows XP supports Google Chrome. Otherwise you will have to upgrade to either Windows Vista or Windows 7.

When I sign in on a different computer am able to send Mail using yahoo, but when I use this computer I can access my mail but I can not sent, I get reply that my webpage has encountered a problem 'unknown...

Are you using internet explorer? firefox? or Google Chrome?

Do this,

Go to

This is google's version of internet explorer. Download and install it, then once it is installed, use Google Chrome to sign into Yahoo Mail. I believe it will let you do so, and if so, you know it is IE, so either stick with Chrome (much much better), or you would need to fully reset IE.

Give Google's a try, it will work! :)
