PC Confidential

CNET Editors' review

This privacy tool lacks the comprehensive feature set found in many competing utilities, but its interface is well-designed and logically arranged. PC Confidential eradicates Web-surfing traces by deleting items such as cookies, typed URLs, and cached files (the program supports Opera and Firefox). It also can tidy up common Windows system areas, such as the Recent Documents list and the Recycle Bin. PC Confidential cleans up after three media players and three IM clients, but it lacks support for other third-party applications, such as P2P programs and antispyware utilities. You'll also find a file shredder. The latest version of the demo provides full access to the program's features for 10 uses, which is better than before, but still subpar. Considering how easy it is to find similar apps whose demos last a full 14 days or more, we can only give this one a lukewarm recommendation.
