Internet software cookies are bits of information stored on your computer when you visit certain internet sites. Your browser can exchange this information when you visit the site again. There can be some privacy issues with this because the internet sites can tell where you have been or how long you have been in a certain area. Your web browser(s) also store your web history and cache files on your machine as you browse the web. These may have been accumulating ever since you began using your browser, and these files can waste large amounts of your hard drive space without you knowing it! Webpages and graphics are stored in various locations, and anyone who shares your pc with you can tell where you have been browsing on the web, especially if they decide to snoop or accidently stumble across these files or registry entries. Besides cookies and other internet file types, java applets or ActiveX controls can also be left behind on your pc, and various other entries can be left hidden in your system registry. ActiveX controls can be particularly dangerous because they are executable files which execute on your pc.
This program is the complete solution. There is no need to use several different programs, as this program will handle BOTH Internet Explorer and Netscape (AOL's browser also), and works with all versions. It will tell you file statistics and will give you a chance to delete cookie files, history files, cache files, ActiveX controls, java applets, url locations, locked index files, and various other unwanted files from your pc. It also cleans up various non-internet files, including your recent documents list, your temp files folder, excess index files, various registry entries, previous file run history, previous file find history and more. Normal deletes using the browsers will leave files in a state where they can be recovered, as numerous recover utilities are available on the net, but the secure file wiping feature of Complete Cleanup will render the file unrecoverable and permanently deleted. Not only will this help protect your privacy, but it will also free up alot of your extra disk space, helping keep your system at peak performance.
