    "Works fine, but delivers unwanted software (malware?)"

    May 03, 2013   |   By ghant1

    Version: Free File Wiper 1.50

    Pros

    Easy drag and drop secure file deletion

    Cons

    Too bad that it won't also overwrite blank space on disks.

    The big problem is the malware. I did the custom install and unchecked the box for additional software. In spite of that I found a new search bar on my Firefox browser called DeleteTab. I uninstalled that and the Free File Wiper. I then reinstalled Free file Wiper and unchecked the boxes for additional software. This time I got 2 unwanted apps, DeleteTab and something called Download Terms."

    Summary

    I guess this app is just a vector that companies can use to inject their apps onto unsuspecting users computers. I'm not sure the apps are very destructive, but nothing should ever be installed without the knowledge and approval of the owner.

    "Pretty Good."

    January 02, 2012   |   By jas-matt

    Version: Free File Wiper 1.03

    Pros

    Has a nice feature, you can 'send' a file to File Wiper by clicking on the 'send to'menu when you right click on a file.

    Cons

    The nagging donation screen that appears before it will function. It's only in English pounds(monetary). I live in the U.S.A. where the monetary value is $.

    Summary

    Other than the nagging 'donation' screen, it seems to work.

    Updated on Jan 2, 2012

    Nagging 'donation' screen for free software.
