Web Browser: Clearning History

Hello,

    I"m curious, if the the browser history i.e. Firefox or MSIE has been cleared, is it still possible to see the pages that have been visited?  A friend of mine believes that her step sons maybe visiting questionable sites and would like to know.   Thanks for your help.

Cookies and temporary files must also be cleaned. History is not enough.
Most of the above files can be found under
Documents and settings\"the users name"  
Search in the area also search on the hard drive for any temp folders see what is in there

itsmevic--I guess I did not really answer your question.
The index.dat file is not affected by deleting History or
Temporary Internet Files.  So it can tell you which sites have been visited in the recent past.

Awesome input, thank you everyone!
itsmevic--You are welcome.
Actually when you use http://www.acesoft.net/index.dat%20viewer/index.dat_viewer.htm you do not have to open the Content.IE5 file or the index.dat file.  Index.dat viewer will do it for you using either of the two tabs at either end of the Super Winspy window.
