Editors' review

It's a wiz at erasing Internet Explorer history after the fact, but watch out for this freeware tool's AutoErase feature.

#1 Free History Eraser has a small interface with a pane in the center and a few buttons arranged vertically on the right. Its not very intuitive for first-time users, but our testers bravely hit the Erase button. History Eraser responded quickly, and the directory location and filenames of the temporary files it erased autocompleted and typed URLs, index.dat files--scrolled down in the center pane. An AutoErase feature is included, which seems to erase such files as they are created. It didn't work as intended for some of our testers, who reported that IE locked up and shut down on occasion when this feature was enabled. Vista users should note that they could be on their own figuring the application out. The Help file is in a format that the new OS doesn't support.

The intermittent issue with the AutoErase feature aside, this freeware tool easily rids your PC of Internet Explorer history.

    "Another Online jerk you around company!"

    August 30, 2014   |   By dwnlnker

    Version: Bitdefender Total Security 2015 18.12.0.958

    Pros

    Software seemed to work fine.

    Cons

    Not a user friendly download process
    Another company that sends you in circles trying to upgrade price.
    Never was able to get just what I wanted and ended up paying but not getting a license key. I never received a license key until I had paypal backout the charges. Then I received a smart ass email saying here is your key but it won't work because you had paypal charge us back.

    End result within two days my brand new computer crashed I had to completely rewrite the hard drive and start from scratch. Why can't these companies do straight forward business? Sell you what they advertise and not jerk you around? The website redirects you over and over keeping you from finalizing just the product you want to purchase. I don't like being tricked into spending more money just to get out of a website!!!! Ridiculous!!!!!

    "Saves the training data from my Forerunner to My Mac"

    August 30, 2014

    Version: Garmin ANT Agent 2.2.2

    Pros

    Transfers my training data to my Mac where I can use it in Garmin Training Center, or any other app which can read the TCX files. The TCX files are XML formatted making it easy for other developer to make supporting applications.

    Cons

    It is not quite obvious when data transfer happens, but it usually does so automatically.

    Summary

    The last software from Garmin which allow me to transfer training data directly to my Mac without sending it to Garmin first.
    I am not sold on the idea of storing files at Garmin's web site *only*. Surely they are really good with backup, but I like to have my own copy.
