    "Con $29.95 Recurring Yearly Subscription"

    June 20, 2007  |   By wycb

    Version: Privacy Guardian 4

    Pros

    Appears to erase most internet files.

    Cons

    When you try to buy it, they don't tell you until the final checkout page that there is a $29.95 recurring subscription fee. They charge your credit card yearly for $29.95 instead of just one time

    "Good."

    April 22, 2007  |   By Security Consultant

    Version: Privacy Guardian 4

    Pros

    Never given software 5/5 in each category before, I wanted to at least have one 4/5 but it just deserved top marks in each. Great work, I'll be telling my friends!

    "Extra features are nice"

    October 18, 2006  |   By Invincible67

    Version: Privacy Guardian 4

    Pros

    Great program, it completely cleans your computer. It cleans alot of files that CCleaner doesn't. The best part is it can bleach your free space. This not only preserves your privacy, but it allows you to speed up your computer considerably. You can also save your settings letting you keep cookies or files that you don't want it to delete.

    "try one of the free programs first:similar to webroot's window washer"

    July 9, 2006  |   By hbc41

    Version: Privacy Guardian 4

    Pros

    this program, like the free programs internet sweeper and ccleaner, will clean internet debris and allow for management of cookies but ccleaner and internet sweeper are free; the wash free space option is not available in these free programs and "free space" is where windows sends deleted items which can be recovered which may be worthy option for some and if you have a specific file to delete, like last's years tax return, it can be identified and washed separately, i bought for 10 when i downloaded spyware doctor from pc tools and would not pay more and free space wash will take a lot of time for a large drive washing what is really free free; so more services than free programs but not worth 30 to me

    Cons

    ccleanter is probably more intuitive and easier to use; for me if you want more secure washes when you dispose of your computer, buy a program that washes the whole drive or discard the hard disc separetely and more securely and save 20 bucks-basically i gave the same review of window washer by webroot-this product by pc tools and webroot's product would make more sense as part of their respective spyware packages at no additional cost to the consumer so the major flaw is price for performance compared to the free programs

    "Very Useful, wish it had more options"

    April 16, 2006  |   By Trurli

    Version: Privacy Guardian 4

    Pros

    Its great to be able to leave your computer knowing that your roommate won't be able to see your salary and business documents, or read your emails to your girlfriend.

    Cons

    Wish it had more info/options about the methods it uses to shred/destroy data.

    "Perfect all rounder"

    September 4, 2005  |   By Fussy Madam

    Version: Privacy Guardian 4

    Pros

    It uses one interface in which you can work through your options and customize your clean up. The shredder is also easy to work with on a separate basis. The overall cleanup is the best allrounder I've found, working with cleaning up several major browsers, microsoft office, and major cluttered areas windows. You can sweep your history to maintain privacy and at the same time free up some hard drive space.

    Cons

    I just don't like the fact that to get all the options you have to pay. The price isn't terrible and the full product is actually definitely the king of all similar software in it's category but still tight fisted little things like me prefer not to pay for software. Freeware is so much more tasty.
