    Windows 8 browser history post clean install

    I've done a clean reinstall of Win8 on my tf810c, but upon opening ie10, my browser history is there. Why? How do I have my history not saved? Is this in the cloud attached to my Microsoft account? Or does a clean install NOT do that? I don't like this at all, what else are they tracking? Thx

    Google and MicroSoft want to get as much info on all of us as possible. Just like big brother.

    If you sign in with a MS Account then likely you got your data synced...

    Check out this article, How To Remove Synchronization Data In Windows 8 With A Microsoft Account

    Also note Privacy and Roaming details from this link...

    Thanks! I'll try unsyncing, and deleting data. If i were to only use a local account on my TF810c, would i be able to use the app store with my Live ID? Or by default does having the ability to use the store require my PC to be connected to a Live ID? I'm trying to get into Windows 8, despite its fault, but this sort of cloud integration bothers me.

    EDIT: OK it works, using a local account i can run the computer, and logging in with my Microsoft Account just for the app store doesn't create any syncing. The suggestions above worked great. I'm now trying to install the new drivers with some struggles. LiveUpdate wouldn't work, and would give an unzip failed error when trying to update to 1.19. Did a clean install again, this time it looks like it's working...

    If you go to PC settings you should see an item in the list called "Sync your Settings", you can choose what is and isn't sync'd there including Internet Explorer settings, history and favourites.
