Editors' reviewThis PC-privacy utility takes care of the basics but isn't as robust as many of its competitors. Privacy Cleaner zaps your surfing history from Internet Explorer, Netscape, and Opera browsers as well as from common Windows system areas such as the Recent Documents list, the Run menu, and the Recycle Bin. The interface couldn't be called pretty, but it is logically arranged and simple to use. However, support for the cleaning of third-party applications is limited to only a few programs such as the Google Toolbar and WinZip. Privacy Cleaner can remove junk files and delete specified folders, but since it won't let you choose from different secure deletion algorithms, we wouldn't use it with sensitive data. On the plus side, we appreciate the inclusion of a Boss Key, which will instantly hide all browser windows at the touch of a hot key. Privacy Cleaner might appeal to novice users with basic needs, but you won't have a hard time finding a more powerful utility in this class.
Privacy Cleaner is designed to protect you by cleaning up all the unwanted history data on your computer. With simply one click, Privacy Cleaner allows you to erase the cache, cookies, history, typed URLs, auto complete memory, and Window's temp folder, run history, search history, open/save history, and recent documents. With Privacy Cleaner, you can easily erase the tracks of up to 200 popular applications, such as playlist of Real player, playlist of Windows Media player, QuickTime, recent files of Office, Acrobat, WinZip, and Photoshop. Privacy Cleaner can also let you customize what file(s) and folder(s) to be erased. With Privacy Cleaner's Secure Erasing feature, you can erase the files completely, which can not be recovered by others.
