Panda Antivirus is bad
Just started with TOR browser. Now that it's activated and protected, I want to use it privately, so that when another machine user is on (who can get in my identity) to check where I went online, needs to be deleted without a trace back. How do I ensure that I have cleared out any cookies or otherwise to identify which web sites I am on?
I know how to use programs but am not into code very well or IT stuff. Any clues how to clean out Tor's records of websites visited?
