Besides eliminating basic privacy risks such as the browser history, cached files, and cookies, Complete Cleanup empties temporary folders, the Recycle Bin, and the list of recently opened documents. It has an option for displaying and disabling start-up files, and you can assign it to clean up any other folders and file types.
Unlike many similar programs, it can clean up automatically at regular intervals. Even better, it handles junk files currently in use by erasing them on the next reboot, which is useful in fighting spyware and adware. The interface is a jumbled mess, but it does contain hints for inexperienced users about what the program is actually deleting. We found ourselves wishing the program had a tray icon or a browser toolbar, but even novices can benefit from Complete Cleanup.
As you browse the internet many websites store information about your browsing habits on your computer. Every Web page you browse is also stored on your machine, and this can allow anyone who shares your computer with you to snoop and view what type of websites you have been visiting. Complete Cleanup displays all your file statistics, improves PC performance, and cleans up all cookies, cache files, history files, video cookies and local shared objects, ActiveX controls and java applets, search engine data and auto forms data, previous passwords and user id entries, index.dat files, MRU's, and history URLs for all versions of Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and AOL. This includes a free spyware review from an actual programmer, and spyware cleanup if necessary, and includes features that allow you to cleanup services, start-up list, and BHO browser helper objects. This also allows you to scan and find all duplicate files, and performs many other disk cleanups, including your recent documents list, temp files, previous instant messages, system start-up list, various registry entries, BHO browser objects and rogue start-up programs, along with the ability for secure file wiping, so the cleaned files cannot be recovered by other utilities at a later time. Cleanups can be run automatically in the background, and a built-in cache viewer is also provided which allows you to view the found files and locations. You can also enter any of your own personal cleanups which you would like to customize and add to your cleanup list. This software will also improve the performance and disk reading speed of your PC.
