Editors' Review

+

Effective and easy, Free Internet Eraser gets rid of most of your tracks, though some features are unavailable in the trial version.

The program makes quick work of traces you've left in Windows and from the Internet: temporary files, your list of recently used documents, Open/Save history, Internet Explorer cache, and lists of visited sites and typed URLs. Plug-ins to clean up traces left by other applications (ICQ, MSN Messenger) are available in the paid version only. The program can perform automatic cleanup at regular intervals (on every start-up or shutdown, for example, or on a timer).

An average user is unlikely to need permanent deletion algorithms (scrambling filenames or overwriting with random numbers), but then again, only the paranoiacs survive. This free utility's advanced features disabled unless you pay for the upgrade. However, even hamstrung it offers capabilities sufficient for most active surfers.

"Limited Use"

February 26, 2013  |  By rqallen

 |  Version: Free Internet Eraser 3.90

Pros

Fast, does a nice job.

Cons

Too limited in scope. Only supports Internet Explorer, no support for Firefox, Safari, etc.

Summary

For an inexperienced user who hasn't graduated beyond Internet Explorer, it is fine. Beyond that...not so much.

"Not reliable and slow"

June 13, 2010  |  By Axel Schelling

 |  Version: Free Internet Eraser 3.50

Pros

Good and easy layout.

Cons

I tested it with single files and multiple folders and got no good results at all. Eraser did actually not get the job done but only to create new weird folders instead.

Summary

No good, sorry to say!

"D<br />Don't work with Firefox"

January 27, 2010  |  By vernonguillory

 |  Version: Free Internet Eraser 3.0

Pros

It clears out problems with Unsafe IE although I only use it to update my MS so it is rarely needed since I don't need to delete anything mostly with the IE myself.

Cons

I don't use Internet Explorer so this don't help me

Summary

I have only because it is a little good on my computer, not on a daily basis. If this is good for Firefox one day, then I would be having a reason to keep it.

"It seems to do the job"

November 07, 2009  |  By Firehorse1955

 |  Version: Free Internet Eraser 3.0

Pros

It is of course in any situation a breach is a serious concern especially
if some how sensitive information is obtained by hacker's.

Cons

Nothing I think it's great.

Summary

You know of such an offer like this effective it's unlikelihood that any other software would give this kind of protaction. I use it each night and the great thing about it is that the computer turns off after it finishes cleaning. I don't have to wait around until it completed it's work and job. You have provided an amazing tool.
Keep this type of software available to people like myself with limited
financial access and I appreciated very much what you have made possible. Once again thanks.
