Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Despite its Web-centric name, this PC cleaner's large list of supported applications turns out to be its true trump card. Alive Internet Eraser's straight-ahead interface is not a masterpiece of design but makes it a snap to configure the app's settings and perform a cleaning session. In our tests, the program made quick work of erasing our surfing history from Internet Explorer, Opera, Mozilla, Netscape, and AOL. This utility also erases documents from certain areas of Windows such as the clipboard and can be used to wipe your hard drive's free space. We were impressed to find more than 100 plug-ins for removing traces left by such widespread applications as ICQ, Kazaa, and WinZip. We appreciated the ability to schedule cleaning sessions and clear delete logs upon shutdown, but we longed for a file shredder for extra security. However, if that omission is not a huge concern of yours, Alive Internet Eraser should do you right.
