This is a question My computer gave away my secrets

A good friend recently found out his girlfriend was pregnant when google autocomplete came up with 'symptoms of pregnancy'...

Has your googling been your undoing? Has someone found your gay porn stash? Have you had a Gary Glitter moment in PC World? Tell us how your computer has ratted on you.

I agree that zipping the lot is the best way to go, along with remaing the extension...I would also suggest that the file needs password protected as the renamed file will still appear in winzips recently accessed files.

Personally I always found it fun to put in a couple of 'flag' files, like a fluffy kitten picture renamed 'pussy.jpg' or similar to flag up when the missus is on the prowl/getting suspicious.

On a theme similar to the majority of the posts here, I got asked to look over the computer of the father of the ex-missus bigquack, as he had a virus on the system he couldn't shift. Quick browse through the files indicated a half-hearted attempt to delete the vast swathes of teen porn on the machine (slightly disturbing, but then the ex-missus-in-law had a face worse than a slapped arse so one can hardly blame the chap). Kept it quiet from the ex-missus who had a zero-tolerance policy on such issues (bloody rabid feminist, though amusingly she later went on to sell battery-operated boyfriends for a living - very empowering I'm sure), though having read some of the other stories here my vow of silence is weakening...
