[citation][nom]darkknight22[/nom]and Steve Jobs get's nothing? man he got the shaft. Who wouldn't want the NSA putting backdoors into their operating systems....[/citation]

Who would want to help them and their perfect OS? I think they did the smart thing and went with over 85%+ marketshare vs less than 10%. Especially when your systems run Windows.

And it's not like the NSA is programming for Microsoft and supposedly putting "backdoors" into Windows (even though MS probably already has). They are just providing help in ways to secure it and patch it. Knowing the NSA they have teams of hackers trying to break it.

The Govt has been involved in MS's OS for awhile. After Win 98 you couldn't get erase past sites you've visited online in the registry. After Win 98 you can't even get in there unless you have programs which allow you to view, but not erase. This is old news.

im sure they fixed a lot of holes at vulnerable areas in the OS, also so that no one ELSE can access the public, but them. BACKDOOR THEORY anyone?

For everyone that keeps throwing linux in there. Be aware that the NSA has a patchset for linux that secure systems need to have as well.

I struggled a little bit with your poorly constructed thoughts/sentences, but it appears that you believe:
1. Windows keeps track of the websites you visit in the registry.
2. The windows registry is uneditable in versions of windows after Win98.

...

Allow me to help you out. Whatever version of windows you are in, go to the start menu, select run. in the box type "regedit" and hit enter. If you are in Vista/7 it will give you some warnings about protecting your computer, but really it's just trying to prevent you from deleting the "secret" internet cache. Bypass those warnings. When the directory tree loads just delete everything there. Some of it may not delete and some of it may give warnings but ignore all those and when you are done reboot.

P.S. You are an idiot.
