This privacy utility offers just about every feature we like to see in this type of application. The cleverly designed interface, which mimics a box of laundry detergent, is a big point in this program's favor. Similar to virtually all applications in this class, Wash N' Go cleans out your browser's temporary files, cache, cookies, and typed URLs. It's great the program now supports many Web browsers beyond Internet Explorer, including Firefox, Opera, and NetCaptor. The application also can wipe traces from common Windows system areas, including the Clipboard and the Run menu. It includes a file shredder, giving you multiple ways to securely delete files. The list of supported third-party applications seems quite comprehensive and includes support for popular IM clients and design programs. The ability to schedule cleaning sessions and to run the program in stealth mode are big pluses, though some users might find the 11-day trial period rather short. Average Web surfers looking to hide their traces likely will find this program offers just about everything they need.
