Advanced Privacy Protector

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Although it doesn't really live up to its name, this PC-cleaning utility handles its basic tasks well enough. The modern-looking interface is easy to understand and provides a wizard to get you started in a matter of seconds. Still, we would have preferred integrated rather than Web-based help files. Like many apps of this ilk, Advanced Privacy Protector erases your Web-surfing history by deleting cookies, temporary files, cached files, and typed URLs. Though the program is primarily intended for use with Internet Explorer, you will find partial compatibility for Netscape and Opera. The utility also clears certain files from your system and Windows Explorer, but you can't wipe traces from any applications other than Windows Media Player. Also, since Advanced Privacy Protector doesn't offer a file shredder, we can't vouch for how securely it deletes documents. However, if your main goal is just to keep your Web-surfing habits secret, this program can help you out in a jiffy.
