My understaning on RAM is that it basically provides "short term" memory and is useful with a number of windows open. If I remove my RAM and give them to someone else, who places them in their computer, is he/she going to get access to anything I was working on before removing them? For example, If I was writing a letter or working on a spreadsheet, can one see it? I'm assuming they can't because the root document is not on their hard-drive. Correct?

They cannot see your documents. Data stored in RAM is lost as soon as the computer is turned off.

Recently Sygate Personal Firewall came up with a message asking to allow a site that came out of nowhere, not thinking I allowed it to open, and here's the kicker, I clicked the "remember my choice" button. Now that makes me feel stupid (I'd looked into the log for Sygate but couldn't figure out...
