Secure Eraser

CNET Editors' review

If you need sensitive data deleted without a trace, look no further than this easy to use application.

Secure Eraser has a colorful interface with three main tabs any user can understand. The program features include secure file and folder deletion, system cleaning, and Registry cleaning. The Secure File Deletion tab is fairly self-explanatory, as it simply deletes user-designated files and folders after overwriting the original file with random data. These deleted files and folders are completely erased and not just sent to the Recycle Bin. System Cleaning allows users to clear up temporary files, Internet Explorer settings, and the Recycle Bin all with a click of a button, but the process wasn't as quick as other tools. Registry Cleaning, on the other hand, is quick and simple. Users can choose which types of Registry entries they want scanned, results appear almost immediately, and deletion is a quick button push away.

Anyone looking for an all-in-one system cleaner can have faith that Secure Eraser will get the job done, even if it's not exactly the fastest program out there in cleaning some areas.

    "GREAT software....."

    September 23, 2013  |   By melen001

    Version: Secure Eraser 4.201

    Pros

    Very easy to use. Can erase Recycle Bin. Current version 4.201 is updated and has all the available options and no more "nagware". It's free for private use. Has a nice GUI and straight forward, even the novice can understand. Highly recommended.

    Cons

    Maybe a little slow but nothing serious. What can you really do with a second if you know what I mean.

    Summary

    Good app, easy, has useful options, erases Recycle Bin, no more "nagware"
