    "Pretty Good Replacement for Window Washer"

    April 14, 2011  |   By dennphill

    Pros

    Price is very (very!) right. Easy install on all three of my PCs.

    Cons

    It will wipe free space (eventually, on my TB and near-TB drives) OK. It will flush out - I guess - stuff put in the Recycle Bin(s). But it won't do a file delete with a cleaning....you must first place the file in the Recycle Bin.

    Summary

    I decided that WW was finally history - it worked OK for me for a few years (through Win98 and into Win XP). I didn't do Vista, and when I went to Win7, I found only recently that WW is back (with a pretty buggy upgrade, judging by user comments) and Webroot is now charging by the year(!), and by the PC(!) for their program. So I went to CCleaner, and the ONLY thing I see wrong is that on the file right-click to "Delete", I really miss WW's addition to the right-click box that allowed "Delete with Bleach" so you never had to worry about the Recycle Bin getting filled with trash. If CCleaner had this feature it would be a 5-Star. (That's a feature suggestion.)
