Default Help please

Hello, I just scanned something onto my computer that is private. I am on a computer that other people use and I don't want people coming across this file ever because they might open it. What I scanned, I emailed it to myself, then deleted the scanned file. I also deleted to recent document.Is there anything else I have to worry about? Is there any where a "recent scanned" that I have to worry about. Thank you for your help!

Why don't you change the date on your system (future), scan another document in, and then do a search of teh whole computer to see which new files were created on that given day?

The old files should be in the same locations.

empty the "recent documents" menu.

right-click on taskbar, click properties.
start menu -> customize -> advanced
recent documents: clear list.

If you've deleted the file make sure you empty the recycle bin aswell, any file sent there can be restored.
