Use your computer long enough and you will start notice that things aren't what they used to be. Your hard drive is filling up with unneeded files, your system's performance is slowing down, and evidence of your Internet usage is everywhere. Privacy Winner is a multifeatured application that helps you manage all of these problems.

Privacy Winner's interface is sleek and intuitive, with its major features separated into different screens that are accessed with a set of attractive buttons. The Security screen allows users to scan for and delete a variety of types of information, including Internet browsing history, Windows cache and history, instant messaging, multimedia, and more. The Junk function, as the name implies, scans the computer for unneeded junk files, while the Shredder allows users to destroy files using three different levels of security. The program is easy to use and works well; our only problem with it--which we have with nearly all programs of this type--is that it has the potential be dangerous if used incorrectly. The program's online FAQ warns that "Deleting or shredding some files or PC traces can cause some irreversible damage. You need to proceed cautiously and be certain of what you are doing." However, neither the program itself nor its FAQ provide any guidance in this regard. Scanning for unneeded files can turn up hundreds or even thousands of results; will you be able to tell what's junk and what's not? If you're not sure, proceed with caution.

Privacy Winner is free. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
