Occassional use of Steady State RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.....I do not wish to have Steady State running continually, either in the background or otherwise.  From my readings of the Forum, it appears I can simply turn Hard Drive Protection on & off as needed.......without rebooting.  Is this correct?

    If not, what would the process be for engaging Steady State before surfing the Net, then eliminating all traces of the Net-session, then surfing the Net without Steady State protection engaged........such as when I want to download information from known or secure sites onto my WinXP-Pro sp/3 PCs?

  • Hi Steven, I'd like to inform you that user need to reboot the computer if you turn on or turn off Windows Disk Protection.

    I suggest you use InPrivate Browsing in IE 8 to achieve this:

    InPrivate Browsing helps prevent Internet Explorer from storing data about your browsing session. This includes cookies, temporary Internet files, history, and other data. Toolbars and extensions are disabled by default. You can check the following link:


    Hope this helps!
