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.

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. :)

Google chrome won't open

Might be due to antivirus or firewall block.,
Test whether antivirus or firewall applications on your computer are causing the problem by turning them off temporarily. Then try opening Google Chrome again.
If you're able to open the browser, you'll need to create an exception in your antivirus or firewall settings for Google Chrome. Once you've done so, you can then re-enable the applications.
Else try the below steps.,
1.Right click the Chrome application from Start --> All Programs --> Google Chrome (or shortcut if launch Chrome from a desktop shortcut)
3.Select Properties
4.Select the Compatibility tab
5.In the Compatibility mode section, ensure checkbox is ticked for "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"?

I cannot get onto the internet I keep getting the mesage I am incognito

Incognito mode (browse in private) For times when you want to browse in stealth mode, Google Chrome offers the incognito browsing mode. Here's how the incognito mode works:
  • Webpages that you open and files downloaded while you are incognito aren't recorded in your browsing and download histories.
  • All new cookies are deleted after you close all incognito windows that you've opened.
  • Changes made to your Google Chrome bookmarks and general settings while in incognito mode are always saved.
Tip: If you're using Chrome OS, you can use the guest browsing feature as an alternative to incognito mode. When browsing as a guest, you can browse the web and download files as normal. Once you exit your guest session, all of your browsing information from the session is completely erased.

Facebook, Yahoo, Google, won't open in Chrome or IE, only in FF.

Windows XP is no longer supported. You have 2 browsers that are reporting the OS to the server and it is not allowing it to run those browsers.

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.

To start with, I would like to inform you that even though you use the same computer, programs on the administrator account does not display on the sub-account. Now, of you want to your son to use google chrome, you need to download it to the computer on your son's profile.

Error 102, connection refused of Google Chrome. I have access to the internet on Internet Explorer but prefer to have it on Google Chrome as it is faster that way. I understand that your tech support is...

it is free in the sense that anybody can answer your question like a chat board it sounds like you like your firewall is blocking it and that you need to go into it and hit allow (for this application) how to do that depends on which firewall you use

How to uninstall Perfect Key Logger?

If Perfect Keylogger has been installed to run in stealth mode, then most likely you won't be seeing the normal uninstall option in Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs in Windows.

Perfect Keylogger is a legitimate commercial program and does come with it's own uninstaller software. You should be able to just access the Options menu within the program and click the "Uninstall keylogger" link in the "Options" dialog or run uninstall.exe file located in the program folder.

Chrome Incognito Mode

from google:
"For times when you want to browse in stealth mode, for example, to plan surprises like gifts or birthdays, Google Chrome offers the incognito browsing mode. Webpages that you open and files downloaded while you are incognito won't be logged in your browsing and download histories; all new cookies are deleted after you close the incognito window. You can browse normally and in incognito mode at the same time by using separate windows.
Browsing in incognito mode only keeps Google Chrome from storing information about the websites you've visited. The websites you visit may still have records of your visit. Any files saved to your computer will still remain on your computer."
Hence it an option to maintain privacy..the same feature is included in IE8(beta)
Hope it helps!

Chrome is not shiney and won't uninstall or install

You can remove Google Chrome like any other Windows program. Follow these steps: Click the Start menu on your computer taskbar. 
Select All Programs. 
Select Google Chrome. 
Select Uninstall Google Chrome.
Click the Yes button in the confirmation dialog box.

The uninstall process will begin and all your Google Chrome browser and application shortcuts will also be removed. 
Alternatively, you can double-click Add or Remove programs in Window XP's Control Panel or Programs and Features in Windows Vista, select Google Chrome in the list, and click the Remove button.

Google Chrome leaves behind your profile information in case you wish to reinstall in the future. To delete this information, go to \Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome in Windows XP or \Documents and Settings\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome in Windows Vista.
