Not so kid-friendly

Don't waste your time with this defective history cleaner.

We're not sure what's so kid-friendly about this utility, which is supposed to remove Internet traces. Regardless of its confusing name, Kids NetLinks Internet Tracks Cleaners failed to clean any of our browsing tracks.

Kids NetLinks Internet Tracks Cleaners offers a basic, but straightforward, user interface. You'll find a list of cleaning options, including browser cache, cookies, history, temporary folders, and Internet files. Next to each option is a Clean button. We went through each cleaning option, one by one, but the program failed to clean any of our browsing traces. A Help link is available, but it only takes you to the publisher's Web site. A forum is available, but it is inactive.

Basically, this utility is a glorified browsing-history cleaner. There's nothing about this utility that prevents kids from accessing inappropriate sites, even after they've been cleared from your history. But even as a basic history cleaner, it just plain didn't work. Don't waste your time with this one.
