    "Have Found Helpful and Effective"

    October 19, 2013  |   By MastErSimStim

    Version: Tracks Eraser Pro 8.9

    Pros

    Nice to clean and erase. Keep your homepage from being changed automatically, a nice little touch. Enjoy overwriting freespace and junk, temp files of all sorts including preferences and registry entries... and logging options, and specific programs can be selected for cleaning with customizable plugins. But does make it easy to do the job without having deep knowledge of this area of expertise. Does clean internet cookies, the sites people have visited must keep IP address in their favorites? When I go back, no remnance of my searches, entries in login and passwords, and clears tracks as it indicates in its name.

    along with McAfee, Webroot SecureAnywhere, and this,,, I feel Piece of Mind. and have for some years now.

    Cons

    None that I can think of. Perhaps, only when it's done cleaning empty space of a drive, it gets caught up and hangs. not sure what that is. But I suppose I could look at the support files.

    Summary

    I bought this a number of years back and use it in conjunction with 2 other maintenance programs, McAfee and Webroot. I feel secure. I also don't worry about freespace files being undeletable as it will be overwritten in your choice of options. Worth the money and is NOT buggy. Not sure what problems others had.

    "Not satisfactory and buggy"

    March 16, 2013  |   By XRaac

    Version: Tracks Eraser Pro 8.85

    Pros

    Cleans junk

    Cons

    buggy. 1 option(prevent your homepage from getting changed) keeps getting checked when I uncheck it. Which means it is unstable and untrustworthy.

    Some icons, including most often tracks eraser pro, gets stuck in the start menu run history list and can't be removed after clicking remove from list. This is not windows issue, this issue appears after installing tracks eraser pro.

    Recently installed applications get highlighted in start menu again after running tracks eraser pro. I consider this a con since it is annoying.

    Summary

    I won't buy this product. It is faulty and sucks.

    July 8, 2012  |   By mott

    Version: Tracks Eraser Pro 8.78

    Pros

    Fast removal, uses minimum resources, great customer service, boss key, stealth mode, disables autocomplete.

    Cons

    Only wipes 10 times. (I would like a plug-in for PalTalk Messenger).

    Summary

    Tracks Eraser Pro lets me sleep well at night knowing my info is safe. It helps my p.c. to run faster, too.

    "Love All The Cleaning Options!"

    October 5, 2011  |   By buckshot351975

    Version: Tracks Eraser Pro 8.62

    Pros

    Overall a good cleaning utility with many additional cleaning plugin options.

    Cons

    When firefox cookies is checked for cleaning in the "eraser settings" it freezes sometimes without completing the cookie cleaning process of firefox, which prevents the program from moving on to the next phase of cleanings if checked.

    Summary

    Overall I like Tracks Eraser Pro & have recommended it to friends! :)

    "Doesn't eliminate all back-up cookie data."

    March 5, 2010  |   By altaira66

    Version: Tracks Eraser Pro 8.0

    Pros

    It gets rid of index.dat data.

    Cons

    Doesn't eliminate back-up cookie data stored on computer.

    Summary

    I installed it and cleaned everything. Then I navigated to weather.com on IE 8, and the site had retained my zip code. Went to another site I use, and it had retained my sign in information. I know some sites save back-up information in other areas of the computer, and I thought Tracks Eraser Pro would find it. It didn't. This must not be part of the functonality of the software.

    "One Of My Faves"

    January 13, 2010  |   By lostkey82

    Version: Tracks Eraser Pro 8.0

    Pros

    I've been using TE for almost 5 years and have never had any real issues with it. Worked great for WinXP, never failed me after i did a deep cleaning; i was never able to recover. It even has a file shredder for an up-to-10 times wipe.

    Cons

    Except for hanging a couple times in WIN 7, and I cant get it to load on startup, I've no complaints.

    Version: Tracks Eraser Pro 8.0

    Pros

    I wish I could think of something good to say

    Cons

    Dangerous. This progam will clean your PC so good that you'll need to reformat to recover. Customer service doesn't exist, 3 emails, no reply

    November 15, 2009  |   By Karl Stocker

    Version: Tracks Eraser Pro 8.0

    Pros

    I had purchased the early version of this little gem years ago, and never had any complaints or probelems with it.

    Cons

    none noted

    Summary

    One of the silent bestsellers you can't go wrong with, and that's never gets in the way either, with friendly people at the other end.
