Editors' Review

+
Though the demo disables some important features, Privacy Guardian easily eliminates traces of certain online and offline activities. In general, the interface is convenient, allowing you to quickly erase your history with the tray icon. Another point in this application's favor is it won't hinder performance since it doesn't use much RAM when running in the background. The file shredder is accessible via both the main window and the Windows context menu, but it won't delete entire folders or let you choose from a list of different secure algorithms. Privacy Guardian removes junk files not only from Windows and Internet Explorer, but also from Opera. It also deletes traces from a large number of popular applications such as ICQ, Kazaa, and Google Toolbar, but the trial version disables this feature. The utility automatically cleans your computer at regular intervals. Privacy Guardian's simple, straightforward nature makes it suitable for PC novices and common users alike.
