Solved tracking websites someone visits via IP?

Specs: Windows Vista
Hello,

I was wondering if it's at all possible to track what websites someone has been to if you know their IP address. Like get a history of where they've been, even if for a few sites?

I feel like someone who has never been around my laptop knows what websites I've been to. It could be coincidence, but he's just mentioned some things to me that seems fishy! I know he has great computer skills and has mentioned hacking interests before. he works in computer security.

I do have a firewall up and have McAfee security centre. Any advice?

Uh.. now I know what you meant.

If they knew your IP address and your comp. password, they
can access it via RDP or Administrative Sharing (like C$,
Admin$, D$ and so on). Otherwise, they probably use Packet
Sniffing technique to see your network / internet activity.

RDP and File Sharing by default, included in Firewall 'allow-
list' policy.

If otherwise you've installed / setting-up a Personal Web
Server on your comp., it's a whole different story ;P

Yes, just by opening your browser history information. You could practice to clear browsing history once a week or whenever you need it.

Most browser nowadays equipped with good private browsing functionality. Means that, once you entered a private browsing mode, your privacy is safe from praying eye. See how to enable private browsing

Thank you, but that's not what I meant. I know about the history, but I said that the person has no access to my laptop. He's never been inside my house.

Is there a way to do it LONG DISTANCE?

yes there are some ways to know what websites you are
visiting from your ip address.
the service providers can easily track your address and see
what websites you are visiting what things you are
downloading.
in this way they keep the record of your download limit but
that's official and private issue.
in case of your "HE",he might be using some similar
technique but as mentioned above you would be able to
protect your privacy by going into safe browsing
mode.browsers like chrome and firefox provide safe browsing
option.unless it's a national security sort of thing you would
be safe from your "HE"
