    Use something like Ccleaner. I'm not recomending that one, that's just what I use, even though I've read it's not as good as the competition. The free version works fine, it just takes some reading to figure out where to click to actually get the free version.

    If you're looking to not leave traces of where you've been with cookies and such then use firefox's 'Private browsing' but keep in mind if you want to visit a site later and can't remember how you got there firefox won't be of any help ;)

    I use the paid version of Mil Shield. There is a free trial version. It works very well.
    Be sure you have all your passwords stored somewhere. It will log you off websites that require passwords.

    Doug, not sure but if you're using firefox jam this into your location bar

    about: preferences#privacy

    remove the space between the : and p because it just makes a raspberryface.

    good stuff in there.
