Completely Hidden Files Bug

Hello,

i wondering why my files hidden still can be searched down there?
(and it feels like indexed, cause no time spend on this search!).

i have private video and music file, and play it on hidden.
i always make sure that the file is hidden.

after open those file, when i click on START button and then TYPE the name of the file on Search program and files Field down there, it always showed up?

I just confused and frustrated can't completely hidden a file.

please help me.

You can try the same thing too, after you see a hidden text file or video file, it still can be searched.

I suppose there are history section somewhere on windows 7 i need to delete.

Am i correct?

It looks like you have "Show Hidden Files" on.

You can tell the Windows OS to not create those shortcuts and then you don't have to remember to delete them.

Or you can opt to show "Recent Items" on the start menu and then right click on that and clear the list.
