Editors' Review

+
This basic privacy-protection application performs its few jobs well enough, but it's far from a comprehensive solution. The Cleaner simply wipes away Web-surfing traces and deletes user history from a few Windows system areas, such as the Run menu and the Recycle Bin. Unfortunately, the app only works with Internet Explorer, neglecting support for popular alternative browsers. This program offers a tool for managing cookies, but unlike some of the better privacy programs on the scene, The Cleaner can't erase your tracks from third-party apps such as the Microsoft Office Suite, IM clients, or P2P programs. Needless to say, you also won't find a file shredder for permanently destroying data. A utility this simple really should be totally free, but you'll only be able to use this program 10 times before the demo expires. Inexperienced Internet Explorer users might appreciate The Cleaner's no-nonsense approach, but anyone wishing a to keep an extremely tight lid on their computer habits will need to keep searching.

Summary

The Cleaner has been working tirelessly on two of our PC's for the last two months and it has saved us a great deal of time and effort in the process of removing unwanted files.

"Important Notice from the Developer"

October 06, 2002

 |  Version: The Cleaner 2.4

Summary

“From the Developer: Please ignore the comment made below. This exact word-for-word same comment has been made on a number of Internet Cleaning apps advertised on this site. The comments made are simply not true and it is obviously a very crude attempt to put people off our products. Do not trust any comments made by ‘Rene’.”
