This very basic yet free privacy-protection tool does what it's supposed to, but basically duplicates functionality already found in Internet Explorer. Internet History Cleaner handles the job suggested by its name, clearing away typed URLs, cookies, and temporary Internet files. It can also wipe tracks from the Run menu and the Recent Documents list. The application provides access to a bookmark-management tool, though Internet Explorer already has one built right in. Unlike full-blown privacy suites, this one doesn't support alternative browsers, can't clean up tracks from third-party programs, and won't securely delete files or let you schedule cleaning sessions. Newbies who don't know how to clean up their IE history manually might examine this freebie, but most other users can safely pass it by.
