Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This privacy application promises to delete evidence of your online and offline traces, but its main function is restricted in the demo version. Evidence Begone's intelligible main interface is designed to erase URL history, auto-complete data, cookies, and temporary Internet files, though it only works with Internet Explorer. It boasts faculties that clean Windows system areas like the Clipboard, Recent Documents list, Temporary Folders, and the Recycle Bin. Evidence Begone includes a basic scheduler that cleans at system startup, shutdown, or as often as every 30 minutes. The file shredder included is a no-no for ultra-sensitive files since it only overwrites files three times. There's no support for cleaning traces left by third-party applications either.

The major downside is that the trial version won't erase anything, not even a single temporary file or cookie, to test its effectiveness. You won't have a difficult time finding a more capable privacy application that will let you more fully try before you buy.
