Editors' Review

+

With hackers monitoring passwords, cookies, and browsing, users need all the protection they can get. Wipe claims to offer that protection in such an easy manner anyone can use it.

This freeware advertises its ease and does not disappoint. We have tested several programs that perform the same task and have never used one as simplified as Wipe. The download consists of a screen listing hundreds of programs that may contain personal data you do not want to share. From Windows XP to temporary Internet files, each is displayed with the number of files and the amount of space each takes. Users have the opportunity to deselect a program if they do not wish it wiped, but beyond that there is not much flexibility.

Clicking the "Delete!" button takes users to a friendly screen displaying the program icon that is being cleaned, along with a rapidly changing list of what specific file is being deleted, a tally of the files and space being cleared, and a graph letting users know how much longer they must wait.

Wipe may be frustrating for computer experts looking for a customizable security option, since it keeps things so simple that users are given few choices or settings to change. However, its simplicity is a benefit, as it makes Wipe an effective and simple option for users of all experience levels. We highly recommend this download for anyone looking to enhance security.

"Would not finish deleting"

Pros

Nice interface.

Cons

Would not finish deleting all the junk files it found.

Summary

I have a Dell, XP with SP4, 2.4 GHz, 2.5 Gig RAM, and it should be enough to run this free program. It installed easily, then scanned my system. I set the "settings" to what I wanted to delete, then looked at all of them.
I pressed the Delete button, and after about 1 minute, it showed an "error" window, number.......something or other, and said to report it!
I used Revo Uninstaller to get rid of this program. I guess it might be OK if it would finish the job. I use CCleaner and Wise Disk Cleaner, and they really do a good job.
