Protecting your privacy while using your computer can be a daunting task. With so many browsers and computer applications storing information such as documents you've used, pictures you've viewed, web sites you've visited, and countless other activities you've been performing.

Window Washer is an award-winning privacy and clean-up utility that eliminates all these tracks from your computer automatically. It cleans your browser's cache, cookies, history, recent document list, and much more! It can run in the background to clean up your tracks when you are done browsing the Internet or any other time you choose.

Main Features include the following:

Comprehensive Cleaning: Window Washer can clean all traces of your Internet and PC activity, including cache, cookies, history, mail trash, drop-down address bar, auto-complete forms, downloaded program files, recycle bin, registry streams, windows run and find history, chk scan disk files, recently viewed pictures, index.dat files, recently opened documents list, ms office 97 and 2000 tracks, windows temp files folder, and more.

Custom Wash Items: With this feature you can easily assign any files, folders, or registry entries for Window Washer to clean. There are also over 150 FREE Custom Wash Item plugins that you can download, that are pre-configured to clean the tracks of various popular programs such as RealPlayer and Adobe Acrobat.

Automatic Cleaning: Window Washer can be set to wash your computer automatically. It can perform timed cleanings at specified intervals, or during Windows shutdown or start-up. It also works with the Windows system Task Scheduler.

Cookie Keeper: Not all cookies are bad! Certain web sites save your preferred settings in a cookie on your system. Window Washer enables you to save only the cookies you want, and cleans the rest. That way, you don't have to re-enter your preferences every time you visit your favorite sites.

"Bleaching": For added security, Window Washer can completely overwrite files with random characters up to 10 times, rendering the file unrecoverable by Undelete or Unerase utilities. Improvements to the bleach function overwrite files in FAT, FAT32 and NTFS, and will even overwrite the "slack space".

Active Disk Technology: Webroot has combined its award winning clean up utility with Iomega's Active Disk Technology. The result is that anyone with a Zip? Drive can take advantage of all of Window Washer's features without having to install the application to the hard drive. You can now take Window Washer anywhere!
