Blessed are the Geeks, for they shall internet the earth

Here is a nice GEEK TIP sent to us from Matt Mitlyng, that allows you to access the IE history dat file:

Open a DOS window and change to the following directory: C:\Documents and Settings\user_name\Local Settings\History\History.IE5

Type this command: find /i "visited:" index.dat > C:\report.txt
Open the C:\report.txt file and you will see a list of all the websites visited by the computer in question.  You will not get date and time info. You can do this remotely by mapping a drive letter from your PC to the C$ share on the other persons computer.

Thanks Matt.
