First, you should be aware that email which you access from a web browser is NOT stored anywhere on your computer. Emails are only ever stored on your PC if you download them using Outlook or Thunderbird or some other email client. You can easily clean up cookies and temporary files by using CCleaner or similar software. This can delete all of your browser history and any temporary files. There is also an option to overwrite deleted files so that they are no longer readable. It sounds as if this is the kind of tool you are looking for. CCleaner has a free version and can be downloaded here: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download

if you are prepared to reinstall you computer then you can perform a full format of the hard disk, and then reinstall windows. but if you kept you emails set to download to another hdd then you could format that hard disk without having to reinstall your computer. generally your email client should have a delete function even if you have to do it manually. if you can find where the emails are stored then you could also delete them from there and then empty the recycle bin which will mean that they are permanently removed from your computer. hope this helps.

All the above advice are all insightful...don't forget to log out if use pc in internet cafe...some people would surely make a mess of your email if you forgot to log out...try to change your password make it alphanumeric...but don't forget it, try to have second option for recovery...

Hello, Follow these steps: 1.After your work is over on the concerned computer, remove all recent history from the browser and this will ensure that the sites you visited on a given day, will be removed from the cache and no one will be able to trace it. 2. Go to My Recent Documents of your computer or just simply type recent by hitting the Run command and then a new window will open, delete everything there. And yeah, no one can see your deleted emails from your computer, they need to have access to your email also for that and that too within one day as email clients keep deleted material for upto 24 hours in trash. Hope this helps :)
