Privacy Eraser Free lets you clean up computer and Internet data that may compromise your security. The software is easy to use out of the box, and it works with several browsers.

Pros

Goes to work fast: Privacy Eraser Free opens with immediate options to scan and clean your computer. You can opt for a Quick Clean, Clean & Restart, or Clean & Shut Down. It pulled up information from all three browsers we have -- Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome -- as well as Windows-related data that includes temporary files, Recycle bin, and Start Menu run history.

Safe default settings: By default, the app is preset to remove certain items from your browsers -- such as Internet cache, history, and cookies -- and from Windows itself. It doesn't, however, automatically delete autocomplete data or passwords. You can also get rid of everything easily by modifying settings, if you so choose.

Attractive interface and extras: It may not help with the software's functionality, but the well-designed interface makes it easy to initiate scans, adjust settings for specific areas such as Browsers, and access the two extra privacy tools that will shred specific documents and wipe certain drive areas. During a scan, a progress bar lets you know how much of the scan is complete.

Cons

Somewhat redundant: Nearly all browsers have options to remove browsing history or delete cookies, and you can always find a clean-up to remove certain Windows files, but Privacy Eraser Free pulls them all together in one place.

Bottom Line

While you may be able to perform most of what Privacy Eraser Free does on your own, it will take you much longer to do than the software. With this app, you can click once and forget it, making it more likely that you'll remove all of the traces from your system and browsers that you don't want.
