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.

""nhtnlned by cnnlacting""

October 24, 2014

 |  Version: PDF OCR X Community Edition 2.0.8

Pros

It recognizes a lot of words. If we were judging this as a batting average of hits versus strikeouts, it would be the all-time baseball batting average leader. Unfortunately getting 2/3 or even 9/10 of the words right isn't good enough for OCR.

Cons

Can't recognize numbers, even in Times, which is considered to be among the most legible fonts in the world. Only crappily OCR's one page at a time.

Summary

Lame. This wasted time I couldn't afford to waste. Thanks for trying, but next time include in the description that this is a prototype that isn't road-ready.

"I cannot believe how well this works!"

October 24, 2014  |  By ben.reed.796

 |  Version: Talkatone free calls + texting 3.6

Pros

My God how far we have come in such a short time. To where a dead useless unless chained to a data plan "by law" phone can be a traveling land line that texts.

Pros wow where to start.

wifi is everywhere even more so in mcds starbucks and a million other places. Hell I have seen free wifi in bars lately. So unless you NEED to be 100% wireless and like me love the idea of 500 minutes for $8 bucks and being a slave to no one. Get this APP.

I was skeptical to and am extremely tech savvy. What made me try it? You can use 1 dollar to test it. Thats right a buck! If it doesnt work f it. But it did! This is life changing technology.

Cons

Big bro will crush it eventually. Also the ringer is awful?

"Free becomes crippled"

October 24, 2014  |  By TxTom

 |  Version: Zulu DJ Software Free 3.35

Pros

It works fully for 14 days.

Cons

After 14 days, you have crippleware. NCH also likes to dump a lot of their other programs on your computer. Experienced this with their transcription program we bought. A VERY uncool practice.

Summary

While it might seem like a good idea to try it out, watch out for the un-desired extras NCH likes to include in their installers. I would steer FAR away from this carrot.

"Never Installed Due to Forced Malware"

October 24, 2014  |  By Kelderic

 |  Version: Free AVI to MP4 Converter 1.0

Pros

I have no idea, I wasn't able to install it.

Cons

It forces you to install other malware programs. There is no "Decline" option during the installation process.

Summary

It might be a useful program but you can't install it without installing malware in addition. I'm surprised that cnet would have this on their website.
