Editors' Review

+
A few minor quibbles aside, this application presents a painless solution to the need to eliminate most traces of your computer usage. The standard grey interface uses a tabbed structure that makes it easy to configure the settings and quickly tidy up your PC. WipeOut Pro clears your Web-surfing history, cached files, and cookies from both Internet Explorer and Opera. You also can choose to clean such areas of your system as registry keys and the Recycle Bin, but you can't eliminate traces from specific applications you've used. The program reliably deletes unwanted information by overwriting it several times with random data, ensuring it cannot be restored. Unfortunately, you can't choose to delete a specific file in this way. Although it doesn't include a schedule, it can be set to wipe files whenever the computer is shut down. Oddly, WipeOut Pro also includes a disk defragmenter, a feature we consider unrelated to its primary function but nevertheless a handy addition. Even though it doesn't offer a feature set as large as that of some competitors, we feel safe giving WipeOut Pro our recommendation.
