Do you care who sees what Web sites you visit, what software you own, and other personal facts that intruders can extract from your PC? Did you know such information includes not only browser tracks but also the updates, queries, and information-sharing activities of every piece of software that contacts the Internet, with or without your permission? And did you know that many so-called system cleaners don't clean all that data? They leave behind traces that, over time, can even accumulate into system-slowing clogs. Anti Tracks Free Edition from Giant Matrix not only erases browser and Windows tracks but also personal data from more than 140 different applications. It offers secure erasing technologies, an empty folder and file scanner, a duplicate file cleaner, a Passwords Wallet, a Panic Key, a Spam Eliminator, and much more.

An installation wizard walked us through the six steps of setting up Anti Tracks, including browser- and app-cleaning settings. We recommend rebooting before you run Anti Tracks (you'll need to reboot afterward as well), and also running the program as an Administrator. When initiated, Anti Tracks displays an estimate of the free space cleaning would reclaim. All you need to do is press Erase to initiate the cleaning. We also tried the bevy of options under Tools, including the File Shredder, Disk Cleaner, and Spam Eliminator, as well as the Uninstaller, Space Analyzer, Startup Manager, and more. Each tool worked as promised, but it was the Data Concealing tools we really wanted to try, especially the Hide Files & Folders tool. We were duly impressed by the latter, which uses steganography to hide data within data.

Preventing attacks may be job one, but keeping your PC clean is also critical to security. Anti Tracks Free Edition packs all the tools and extras we expect from a capable system cleaning bundle, and then some.

Developer's Description

Clean up junk, duplicate files, erase tracks and protect sensitive data.
Just about everything you do on your computer can be tracked. That's because every time you visit a website, view an online video, or open or create files using any type of application on your computer, traces of data get stored on your hard drive. Even when you clear your browser history, delete files, and empty your recycle bin, those traces of data remain. While this is your computer's way of making it easy for you to revisit websites or restore data that you accidentally deleted, those traces of data can serve as an open book to anyone who gains access to your computer. Accumulate enough of this hidden data, it can also slow down your computer and compromise its performance over time that is unless you have Anti Tracks.

With Anti Tracks - Free Edition installed on your computer, you can permanently erase ALL web browser, Windows, and third-party application usage history, including the revealing tracks of hidden data, without any chance of recovery even with today's most sophisticated computer recovery tools. In addition, Anti Tracks - Free Edition includes a set of advanced security features that allow you to securely hide sensitive files and folders, as well as permanently delete the ones you want off your computer forever. Anti Tracks - Free Edition also safeguard's your computer's performance with useful maintenance tools that make eliminating unnecessary applications and data files from your hard drive quick and easy.
