I quickly ran Torpark from a USB thumbdrive, on Win XP Pro SP2.

I see new files and directories created in
C:\Document and Settings\username\Local settings\Temp

To me, it looks like a gif, 4 dll, a folder and a TMP, but this may not
be forensically sound information since I'm using the default Windows
file browser and had no opportunity to run my usual tools.

On Torpark quit, TMP  file is removed. On Torpark restart, a new folder
with identical contents (dlls, gif) and a TMP is created.

To me, it looks like it is possible to determine if someone used Torpark
on a  pc by looking at this files. As for obtaining other information
abut the Torpark session, I am skeptical.
