Editors' Review

The motto One Step Ahead greets you as you open Zero Trace, and that slogan rings absolutely true, as this privacy application trumps most of its competition. Basically, the interface consists of three major sections labeled Options, Cookies, and Shredder. Options handles most files you'll want to erase, including those from the system, Web browsers, IM clients, and any plug-ins. This application's support for plug-ins is its strongest feature, since it can clean up after a variety of applications. The section for messaging also handles any Outlook Express file you might want to delete. The only complaint we have with the skinnable interface is that browsers and cookies are separate, which seems counterintuitive. Even though it takes a while for you to set its options, the program takes only seconds to collect and destroy data with a single mouse click. The 10-day trial period is a bit stingy, but the program isn't limited in any way. Zero Trace works its magic perfectly, so we think it's an excellent choice for anyone wishing to cover his or her tracks.

Developer's Description

Save disk space and protect your privacy by erasing all traces of activity on your computer.
This cleaning utility erases all traces of activity on your computer, saves space, protects your privacy, and leaves no history behind. Zero Trace supports more than 100 plug-ins (third-party software) and includes a shredder to make sure no file is recovered. The shredder can also destroy previously deleted files as well as shred files and folders with a simple right click. Zero Trace also allows you to save certain cookies and has a built-in update feature that will automatically download new plug-ins and check for new versions. Also Zero Trace is skinnable so the user can pick the interface that best suits them.
