I've never had any antivirus program on my computers and it still takes forever to delete browser history.

Jesus Christ, go outdoors for once. Why the fuck would you need something like that? So you can play WoW and edit HD movies at the same fucking time?

Why the fuck would you want a Lamborghini? You don't need 12 cylinders, and you don't need to drive a 1/4 mile in 11 seconds from a stand still.

That's silly. Are you some sort of Nascar driver?

It's like having a Lamborghini that's always in the garage though. Is there honestly any benefit of having say 6 core over 4 cover? I just can't think of any use that would require that.

The following is a rough explanation to BB's concern:

Deleting a file from your computer doesn't actually erase it, it just frees up the area on your disk where the file was so that it can be overwritten if a new file needs to be created or saved. This is done through pointers in the file system area that literally "point" to the first address on the disk that the file is located. Each file has its own pointer. Deleting pointers in the file system takes approximately linear time (erasing 100 files takes 100 times as long as deleting one file). If you're online a lot, you're likely to have a lot of internet files, ergo, the long wait erasing them. Disk access time and rpm play a large role, too.

Most textbooks on Operating Systems devote a good chapter or two on this.

this is how the FBI 'recovers' child porn from your hard drive after you've deleted it.

I forgot about this.

Stupid Norton wanted me to run delete browser history before

cleaning of registry errors so I switched it around and browser history took 2 seconds , done.

or maybe it was because I ran malwarebytes and caught two nasties before I ran the registry cleanup, meh

it's fixed.
