Tracking system developed by Norway’s National Criminal Investigation Service. It tracks peer-to-peer identities (ip addresses) on the Emule network, and monitors illegal files being traded over the network. It can detect such files based on their SHA value, the digital fingerprint that a file possesses. All types of files have this digital fingerprint: mp3s, divx video files, text files, you name it. If any part of the file is altered, say with a paint program for jpegs, then the SHA value.
Right to your very doorstep. With the help of Google Maps, and a whole plethora of other mapping applications, this can potentially lead to some very annoying and/or embarrassing situations. Do you think this information would be valuable to door-to-door salesmen? Or perhaps a company that sends out mailed advertisements? Of course it would! First things first, let’s briefly say a word about the difference between privacy and anonymity. They are not the same thing. Not by a long shot. Privacy.

However it sends your IP address within the torrent tracker right along with it…anonymously. It would be like sending a secret message in an envelope directly to the person you are attempting to hide that message from. This is not a problem.
Mini-snapshot of the pictures unless this is disabled. Windows 7 is a completely different file system to Windows XP. Instead of keeping the thumbnail cache within the folder where the pictures reside, it stores it in a central location (%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer) I have found it much better to just leave the thumbnail option off in Windows 7, as the images load fairly quickly without the need for a cache to speed things up. There are other files, like text, audio.
