Editors' review

This simple application displays Internet Explorer and Window traces but lacks printing functionality. Computer History Viewer's simple and utilitarian interface makes for easy operation. The program tracks only Internet Explorer and Windows OS.

With the click of an option button, Computer History Viewer instantly shows cookies, cache files, browser history, typed URLs, index.dat files, and the autocomplete memory. The program also displays recently opened documents and previously used application histories. We wish the program provided a method to save or print displayed tracks.

Computer History Viewer is a standalone executable. It doesn't require installation and is small enough to be easily carried on a USB flash drive. Anyone with a need to check traces will find it useful, easy to operate, and informative.

    "My security blocked this from being installed"

    March 09, 2010   |   By Elizabeth-C

    Version: Computer History Viewer 1.1

    Pros

    Downloads as CHViewer.exe

    Cons

    Kaspersky identified this as - "not-a-virus:AdWare.Win32.AdBar.l" and blocked any further installation. I checked with other security vendors and the reports were mixed.

    Summary

    Kaspersky, Viruslist.com, Spyware Terminator, A-Squared and Prevx all agree this file is dangerous while Avira-AntiVir and Malwarebytes' both say it's harmless. Some very good company's sitting on ether side of the fence so I guess it comes down to personal choice. I think I'll live without it.

    "VIEWER with a link to BUY another program "

    July 13, 2007   |   By DH950

    Version: Computer History Viewer 1.1

    Pros

    It easily lets you view various history type files. View ONLY.

    Cons

    It has no sorting. No built in printing. No full screen view, so if you want print anything you have to copy the whole screen and edit it in another program.

    WORST It has a link to $24.95 program called Internet Disk Cleaner whose certificate is not valid, same with the copy on Download.Com. I installed the program, but it appears it is useless unless you PAY, which I DID NOT.

    If you want to do any deleting, you will have to find the info shown and do it the manual way or find a more useful program than this one.

    Version: Computer History Viewer 1.1

    Pros

    Easy way to view history, cookies, etc.

    Cons

    It would be nice to be able to resize screen, sort listings, and view other users' history (so I can monitor my kids' usage from my account).
