Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
This program lets the privacy minded easily cover their tracks, but the large feature set may overwhelm the less experienced. Tabbed screens organize the numerous features and options of this program. The primary function is the single-click Quick Clean, which deletes files and erases histories in key Windows folders and cleans up tracks generated by Internet Explorer, Mozilla, Opera, and AOL browsers. All actions can be easily automated with the included schedule function. Program plug-ins give users the ability to delete personal information stored in more than 180 third-party applications. You can easily create your own plug-ins for programs not listed. The file shredder lets you overwrite data a select number of times but doesn't support government-sanctioned algorithms. Windows and Internet Cleaner Pro covers the vast majority of privacy bases and seems best suited to more advanced paranoiacs.

Developer's Description

Protect your privacy by cleaning up your browser's cache, cookies, history, typed URLs, index.dat, autocomplete memory, and tracks of past Windows activity. Windows and Internet Cleaner Pro is a very useful program for cleaning up the history of your activities on a computer. Even though many of the tasks can be performed manually, Windows and Internet Cleaner can automate this process for you. The program is designed to protect your privacy by cleaning up unwanted history data and Internet tracks on your computer. It allows you to erase browser cache, cookies, history, visited URLs, typed URLs, autocomplete data, index.dat, temp folders, run history, search history, open/save history, and recent documents. The cookie-cleaning feature allows you to specify cookies to keep, so you don't erase your important login cookies. In addition, you can change the paths of several system folders (History, Favorites, etc.) and customize the IE title bar text. You also can have Windows and Internet Cleaner automatically clean your files when Windows is started or shutdown. Windows and Internet Cleaner implements the U.S. Department of Defense and NSA clearing and sanitizing standard, which gives you confidence that once deleted with Windows and Internet Cleaner, your file data is gone forever and can not be recovered. The application comes with an attractive, Windows XP-style interface and is easy to use.

Version 2.10.2 adds an erase Windows swap file, support for RealOne Player, MSN Messenger, a cleaning action hot key, and fixes some bugs.
