I didn't get a chance to check my e-mail yesterday and when I did today, of course, the free offer was no longer available. After reading your comments, I'm glad I didn't have the time to check because it seems like it wasn't worth the time to download.

You people that don't use one of these or those that just use CCleaner are seriously mistaken in your beliefs. I hate to inform you but CCleaner isn't close to what it's cracked up to be although it is free! I have no use for it at all as it laid waste an XP system on me before.
The problem I see with todays offer is that it's name is misleading. It implies that it's getting rid of some illegal activity thus protecting you from the man. In actually, it's a junk cleaner. IE: cookies, cache. Windows temp. files, temp. registry streams which by the way is completely safe. I used to think that when one deleted a registry key, it might have been damaging something. In actually I thought that until I met the owner of "Privacy Killer (another like software), who taught me the error in my thinking!
In truth, I don't care if you use one or not. I don't have to maintain or care for anybody else's PC's but my own. So make up your own mind as to the usefulness of an app of this type. But I wouldn't knock them until you know more about what your saying. It's obvious to me by todays thumbs up/down voting that most of you have no clue. And I could care less about the voting on any offer either.

Every keystroke you ever made can be recovered if J. Edgar Hoover and his boys have a mind to. Neither this program nor any other can stop it. Only thing is who has the time or interest? But if you ever are set up for "special treatment," every web site, every everything is right there to be used against you. Even if some fornography popped up for one second, and you never even saw it, it's there and can be used for whatever authority the gestappo intends.

Well, this is different!
Works on XP and Vista x32/x64

Pros:
It works.
Finds many interesting things to remove.
Brings about 5 or 6 different "free" programs under one heading.

Cons:
Well; everything else!

Lets start with the freeware choices since so many people prefer free only because it's free.
My choices:
http://www.ccleaner.com/
One of the easiest to use.

http://system-cleaner.comodo.com/
From a well known and well respected security software firm

Now the two things I use are CC for system cleaning and BCWipe
http://www.jetico.com/download.htm
for deleting things I don't want others reading.
As a side note: the US Government does not use the "Government Security Algorithms". They use the Peter Gutmann computer security algorithm.
Back in the real world, a two pass write is enough to block even the best recovery lab if it is done correctly.

This was HELL to figure out how to install the first time,
Unzip the download. Run the "Setup" program that is only an auto-extractor. Figure out where your software went. (It did not go to C because I do not HAVE a permanent drive on C) Open the folder. Run the new installer. Find out that the registry key is not real. Load program. Click register; it's a pop-under so get frustrated and close the program; only to find the registration menu.
To much!

Once registration was out of the way; it's interesting.
It really is designed to eliminate "evidence" It has built in auto-pointers for eDonkey/eMule, Torrents, et all.

Thing is; quality programs and frontends already do this "elimination" for you.
Lets take each "setting" one by one.

Internet history? Firefox: Tools:Options:Privacy:Clear Now
Now with IE8 IE doesn't even require a "history"
Despite what others have said, it is possible to manually delete internet history/files/et cetera. For the ones that are doing naughty things, it's probably better to do it by hand; allowing you to wipe files rather than just delete them.

The better torrent programs, K-protocol and e(insert bovine here) overlays all have an option to clear or clear to folder/recycle bin allowing complete wiping and erasure from that point.

MS Office/Applications
So it can parse MRU db files. Great! So can every other quality free and ALL pay file/drive over-wipers. This one fails to pick up more than half the programs on my drive For those on Vista, any of the current Windows 7 betas, and 7rf1 Alpha; this will miss MANY program MRU databases. Simply because they're no longer situated only in "currentuser:appdata:local" and the program folder. They are placed in wherever microsoft decides to put them. Sometimes in Local:roaming, sometimes in System32, or WOW64/sysWOW64, (boot):\temp, or anywhere else on the drive. The ability to scan all folders for MRU dbs is sorely missing here.
Point 2: this does not WIPE MRU dbs; it only empties them.

Messenger histories. I'm sorry, but dumb ass, if you don't want someone to read you message logs/scripts/history, et al, DON'T ENABLE IT. Every major messenger program and overlay has logging turned off by default.

DO NOT DELETE .LOG FILES WITHOUT LOOKING AT THEM FIRST!
post xp many programs use a .log file as an uninstall log.

Don't play with your regestry if you don't know what you're doing. Don't dump ANY data with this program (or any cleaner) after a windows or program update without restarting.

Use your head, if you don't know what it is, leave it alone.

Long rant aside:
This program, in a bubble, ignoring everything else that's out there. 8/10.
It does what it says it will do.

This program in the real world, 4/10.
While this combines the jobs of other programs, it doesn't work half as well as single standalones do. Jack of all trades; MASTER OF NONE! ?

This program for knowledgeable power users 2/10.
Just not enough there, and it misses to much.

Great for a teenager looking at porn sites on a parents computer and talking to their internet boyfriends. Bad for businesses, governments, criminals, hypochondriacs, conspiracy theorists, privacy loons, and just about everyone else.

Hello again.
Thanks for reacting on my (well, Comodo's) call about a Trojan.
I suspected it to be a false positive because after several hours I was still the first to have come across it. Is there nobody else using Comodo then?
Ibrahim, maybe I'll contact you in the near future, I don't have the time now.
Struan7, thank you for the adresses you mentioned. I'll use them in the near future for further education...
Argonaught, as there is no-one else mentioning this alert, I think I've unearthed indeed a false positive. Thank you for mentioning that your Avast Pro did not 'cough'.
Maybe I have to change my security.....

Reply to #13 -

Long story short; A long-time personal friend was recently accused of inappropriate behaviour with a 16 y/o. The police came, took statements, confiscated computers, hauled him off to jail and slapped a $250k bond on him. Flash-forward 1 year later. All charges are dropped except... they found 3 small images in the cache that were possibly under-age girls and the prosecution is attempting to hang him for that evidence.

The fact that my friend is queer as a three-dollar-bill doesn't matter. The fact that those images were probably popped-up while visiting gay-porn sites doesn't matter either.

All that matters is that the images *look* under-age and since he can't prove that they are not, he's going to jail for the next 4 years.

Think about that next time you surf those 'questionable' sites or 'accidentally' visit one and pop-ups flash all over your screen.

Oh, and remember - In most states, child molesters can't be within 1500 feet of schools and day-care centers. The law also prohibits them from living within a 500-yard radius of playgrounds and facilities serving children - like libraries, for instance.

Is your home within 1500 feet of a place where children gather? I'll bet it is.

----------

Now the question is: Is this software any good?
The answer is: No. Not if you need real protection.

There are better products on the market that will protect you.
Like what? Truecrypt and Sandboxie, for starters.

So if you're trying to hide a porn habit from your wife, sure, this software will help. But if you're really paranoid and need to hide something that will land you in jail, look somewhere else -- And consider if what you're doing is worth going to jail.

There are some things that you want to be careful erasing and with a program that does not allow you to review what it is about to delete or selectively pick what you want to keep can cause issues on your computer, thus I recommend staying away from this program... or at least this version of the program...

Ever since Returnil was offered here, there are no uses for registry cleaners, junk file finders, cache cleaners, etc. NOTHING compares with Returnil, not even Sandboxie (see newest version of Returnil Personal). It seems like a step backward when GAOTD offers 'system/disk utilities' after offering a bullet-proof vest (Returnil). Many may complain, but Returnil is 100% effective.

#5: "For the users who truly care enough about keeping themselves secure with their history, they know how to thoroughly clean it manually in the browser, which is likely more thorough."

I respectfully disagree... 1) many people don't know how, or simply don't bother digging into their browser's options to clean this stuff out. & 2) when/if they do clean it, there's a big difference between deleting it in the browser (which is anything but thorough) & erasing it.

"Besides that, other (probably better, as they’re more wellknown, and thus more trustworthy) programs.."

Actually this isn't a category of app where being well known or allegedly trustworthy has anything to do with much of anything IMHO. There are loads & loads of programs that can erase data from your hard drive -- to securely wipe the entire disk you simply have to do a regular (not quick) format however many times. That part of it is pretty hard to get wrong. Any difference is in the design & usability of the program itself.

* * *

#13: You do make some good points, BuBBy, re: Secure Evidence Scrubber isn't going to transform anyone's life -- it reminds me a bit of the Orbit gum commercials... However, using a program like this, or CCleaner can maybe be a bit more helpful to some folks: Using a PC/Laptop for work at home comes to mind, where the legal issues are pretty murky about who can do what, & these systems can be subject to thorough searching, say by an employer or the IRS seeking to prove who did what on the system when. In those cases any on-line trails can be totally irrelevant, or maybe the user had enough sense to use TOR & didn't leave a trail?

"(Secure Evidence Scrubber will only remove ALL your cookies - so your “remember logins” for your favorite sites etc or other preferences are lost."

If you're concerned about privacy, you don't keep cookies past the current session -- personally I just don't see any benefit to keeping them around that isn't outweighed by privacy &/or security concerns, & there are loads of password programs & such, or store it in the browser, so log-ins are almost painless.

fubar you hit the nail on the head again.

Conflicting inaccurate information about this program. IT is like…well they didn’t even try it.

The misinformation from the different people and of course the “usual suspect” make is so hard for those that think they make valid assessments. I know enough to figure out whether I want a program or not. If I have questions, I look over the comments of people that have some knowledge. There are a few including you fubar. In depth comments from you and those that have something positive to offer.

It isn’t likely to change but hopefully most will figure out over time who to trust.

Re my previous posting: I just typed www.r into my address bar when the phone rang.. I moved away from the keyboard for a second, only to glance back and see that Explorer was listing every site beginning with Http://www.r..... that I've ever visited...(I'd call it ghosting for want of a better description). So, so much for "getting rid of evidence" @28 My antivirus Avast Pro found no virus ot trojan lurking.. I'd be interested in knowing if anyone else's does either, though. FINAL THOUGHT Um guys from Azoosoft, I like your product but, could you address this phenomenon of "ghosting" sites in the address bar in your next upgrade?

#24: Phil
I gave those examples because professional tools should ask their users before setting them up in startup configurations. Enabling or disabling them is a separate permission provided by windows, but from aspect of a professional tool, its user must be fully aware of its any such activities.

Otherwise many trojans/viruses/keyloggers also silently set themselves in startup configurations.

There's a pretty big difference between deleting a file & erasing it, like Secure Evidence Scrubber does. Deleting a file removes it from the table of contents on your hard drive -- erasing it over-writes your hard drive where the file was stored. Unless a file is over-written, it's fairly easy to get it back -- that's what all those undelete programs do. So, when it comes to privacy there's a very real difference between using something like Secure Evidence Scrubber & having your browser clean it's cache.

Whether Secure Evidence Scrubber fairs better/worse compared to alternatives like CCleaner is up to you and your individual preference on how the program windows are laid out, ease of use etc... frankly if you use the DOD 7 pass wipe, can't imagine as far as results go, that it makes a whole lot of difference which program you used to perform the wipes.

System: AMD Athlon 64X2 4000~4 Gig RAM~Seagate 1TB HDD~Windows XP SP3: You know what? I like this program. It downloaded and registered easily. It wiped all traces of my previous online activity to steamy sites like http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/secure-evidence-scrubber-11/ and told me I've recovered 60.7MB of disk space. From what I can see this program was designed to compete against CCleaner, and is comparible. Trouble being this would cost me $24.95 and CCleaner is free (Well the version I use, was). I've upgraded to Secure Evidence Scrubber

Hi all!!!


Little GEMS such as ATF CLEANER, DISK CLEANER and INDEX DAT ANALYZER can all do the same things for FREE:


h ttp://majorgeeks.com/ATF_Cleaner_d4949.html

h ttp://www.diskcleaner.nl/download.php

h ttp://download.cnet.com/Index-dat-Analyzer/3000-2144_4-10564321.html

(remove space at beginning)



And anyway why should people install this (useless) GAOTD if we can nowadays grab for FREE staggering professional programs such as TUNE UP UTILITES 2007 and Ashampoo WinOptimizer 5 which both do the same things of “Secure Evidence Scrubber” plus tons of more tasks that this GAOTD doesn't?

Can't get point!!


- TUNE UP UTILITIES 2007:

h ttp://www.vnunet.com/vnunet/downloads/2231665/tuneup-utilities-2007


- ASHAMPOO WINOPTIMIZER 5 (worth £ 25)

h ttp://www.vnunet.com/vnunet/downloads/2219165/ashampoo-winoptimizer

(remove space at beginning)


Finally, to remove unwanted and obselete data or unused SW installed on your PC (for instance all the junk programs that come preinstalled on your PC as trial versions when you purchase it), so as to boost the performance of your system dramatically, I suggest also to use a nice FREE and pretty UNKNOWN standalone program called "PC Decrapifier" which can be downloaded for free here:


h ttp://www.pcdecrapifier.com/

(remove space at beginning)


So as for as I'm concerned THUMBS "NEUTRAL" for this GAOTD (and not DOWN because I simply don't need it...LOL!!)

Hi #28 (yes it's me) if in doubt, you could send your file up to.....
http://www.virustotal.com
http://www.kaspersky.com/scanforvirus
http://www.drweb-online.com/en/virustest.html
If these sites respond stating that the Secure Evidence Scrubber file is "Clean" then you can relax and install the program.

These btw are handy services - especially if your antivirus software is inaccurate or giving out false positives. Also handy for any GOTD readers who are uncertain if a particular file is infected or not. IIRC, they only accept smallish files.
Hope this helps.

#15: the screenshots on the homepage for this software (IF ONLY you had bothered to click-thru like I usually do...) CLEARLY SHOW you can untick the program to start-up with Windows!

Many of these computer cleaners with names like "evidence eliminator" or "evidence scrubber" et al, tend to use scare techniques like the description given by the makers of this particular product, with the aim of SCARING you into handing over your hard-earned cash to hide stuff which "They" aren't looking for/at anyway! If you dare to visit one pornographic site and leave the "evidence" of it on your harddrive for awhile, you're hardly gonna get your door kicked down in the middle of the night by Big Brother, come to take you away for committing such a sin - GET REAL! If They *are* spying on anyone, it's those who've been TOO careless in their online activities - generally speaking, not Mr or Mrs Average Joe.

Someone reported that ATF cleaner was good, but it only works on XP and Windows 2000 but then it has notes about using on vista (tells you something about the program. I say cut the crap and go with CC Cleaner. Its a must and you don't go bust.

@ #11
Those brotherly affections were put because unlike other authors i do like to hear from my users. I put those affections, not for you to feel sorry for me, but for you to post a real feedback on how to make Secure Evidence Scrubber better and not just write "CCleaner is free" even without testing the product.

@ #28
Ofcourse it is a false positive.
People visiting this community have already installed this product and if it were a malicious program then they would have posted.
Earlier the exe and the dll files in the program were compressed using UPX, but this gave a lot of false alarm on Virustotal.com so in this new version the files are not packed anymore.

I'm passing today to but not because I, in any way don't think a program of this type is useful. I already own 3 others.
1) Tracks Eraser Pro which isn't claiming Vista ready but does fine on my Vista Ultimate.
2) Privacy Eraser Pro which is Vista compatible & gets the bits the first misses.
3) Total Privacy 5 that I got here last year but no longer use. I prefer the other two.
Regardless of how many folks swear by CCleaner, I don't & won't ever use it again after it trashed a system on me a couple years ago. I won't make the same mistake twice.
A good program of this type will do justice by it's user provided you learn how to use it & set it up. I wouldn't be without mine, ever.
#28, get rid of Comodo! Thats all I can say there. False positives are all to frequent with some anti-virus applications. Besides, if you have to use free, Avira Anti-Vir Personal v9 is recently released & if I had to depend on free, thats exactly what I'd be using if for no other reason then false positives are fewer there. I'd pay heed to that like I'd go through a continual, constant battle with their firewall. I wouldn't! No pun intended.

Run the setup and it installs and then validates it on GAOTD.
Makes it's own Directory. But no icon on desk top.
So, I go to the Directory where it installed and there is another setup.exe file load that and it put icon on desk top but does not registers it.
Tried the install many ways but no luck.
This would be Nice one click way to do the job. Sure windows has it own.

#25 I guess you didn't see this Please comment only on the software here. like I didn't see anyone ask about IE8, only comments that it has same features as this program.

I'm not doing anything to hide and find that I rarely use these cleaners, although I do have Glary. I do occasionally open my cookies and history files myself and clean them. I'll give this a try and then run Glary to see if it still finds anything and report back here.

Software installed & registered properly in Windows Vista Home Premium. There are many options and settings that can be used such as auto start-up. I did a test with the registry cleaning and it found 2 main items that I no longer have, i.e. Acrobat Reader 6 and Acrobat Reader 7 (I now use Acrobat Reader 8). I definitely give this software a thumbs up.

After yesterday's brain-dead comments and so-called "reviews" (see my comment near the end), much of today's comments are along the same line, completely missing the functionality of the offering. I think #13, BuBBy's comment, is the most relevant. There are two issues. One is the tone of the marketing hype, the function names, and the descriptions in the Help file. Instead of just characterizing items as normal history items, it describes them as evidence, implying that you're attempting to conceal criminal activity. During normal computer usage, most historical information and logs are useful, and should not be "cleaned". The second issue is the frequently-occurring one of going up against more versatile and complete freeware. As BuBBy noted, CCleaner is conveniently extensible.

Since some people asked about IE8 (released), Microsoft has dropped the useful "Define with Encarta" accelerator. I also had to uninstall and reinstall Flash, which was working fine in the Release Candidate. IE8 (released) appears to have better integration with Windows Search 4, although I noticed that some indexed items aren't showing up. I'm aware of the MHTML iFilter bugs, but this is something else; I'll rebuild my index in case it's corrupted. Google Toolbar 6 beta is supposed to have an option to replace IE8's new tab page, but the option isn't present, and it always uses Google Toolbars's new tab page, which is extremely slow. The Google Quick Search Box may have started as a Mac app, Google has an open-source version for the Mac.

#1, #5 and others who think the browsing method of cleaning history ETC actually works are greatly mistaken. I know this because I work on systems that people have used this method and find at least 300MB to 600MB's of junk still on their systems (One time I found 1.3 GB's). CCleaner isn't all that it's cracked up to be, and no one program does it all unfortunately.

I use (With great success)Advanced System Care, Glary Utilities, Total Privacy 5 and Clean Cache to be sure I'm keeping my system clean (Though I don't use Total Privacy 5 on others systems because of its cost).

Of course "Good" programs don't allow you to recover things you've tossed into the recycle bin and deleted. But then again who throws a diamond ring into the trash, and after trash pick up day expects to find it? One shouldn't be doing things like that anyway.

#15 You examples of "Bad" and "Un-professional" just don't hit the mark. 80% of the programs out there want to run on startup, that's why we disable the stuff in msconfig. When one deletes things from IE or with many other cleanup tools you never see exactly what they're getting rid of so why condem a program for doing the same.

I suggest people give this program a try, and like all other such programs do a system backup first. I just wish some of these self proclaimed wannabe pro reviewers would point out true flaws and not petty dislikes of a given program. I'm giving it a try after backing up my system, then see just how much my other programs find. I mean after all that's the only real way of testing a program like this.

ATF Cleaner is safe as it does not clean any registry keys.

Notes for Windows Vista users:

On Windows Vista that "Windows Temp" is disabled, to empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator"

Prefetch has been disabled on Windows Vista. As I'm not sure the effects that emptying prefetch on Windows Vista will have for the time being it I won't enable that function.

FoxMarks is a Bookmark Synchronizer from and to its own server. How you are comparing it with Secure Evidence Scrubber?

Of course, I will await Ashraf's review before giving up on it entirely!

Yeah, I've got to agree with the others - nice try Arzoosoft Solutions, but Ccleaner is definitely the way to go. I trust it 100 percent. I've been using it for a number of years now and have never had a single problem. The lack of an ability to know just what it is you're deleting is just downright scary and a sure recipe for disaster. I'm no techie, but even I can see how potentially dangerous this is. Maybe Arzoosoft can work on these issues and release a safer product. But for now, thanks but no thanks.

I can't speak for this offers effectiveness because I already use two others & have been for years. For that reason alone I'm passing. But, for those of you that don't use any such program, I'd say give this a try. before I go further, let me say that neither of mine are CCleaner or Advanced System Care! I've had headaches from both of those.
When it comes to certain types of software, I just don't use freeware. Free is great sometimes but thats not always the case. History cleaners & security are two that I pay for because I like the best I can get. Theres no more pain in the can then my anti-spy program detecting cookies over & over & even though I use Firefox almost exclusively, it doesn't cleanup after itself the way my cleaners to.
Now you freeware junkies can hammer this comment because I could care less. But, I'd be willing to bet that once you use a good history cleaner thats set up the right way, you'll change your minds. Don't believe it? Try a couple & see for yourselves.

Thank you, Ibrahim but I don't need this software as I have Tune Up Utilities. Best wishes anyway!

Post #11.

Thanks for your input and good that the suppliers of any program on here contributes.

'Brother'? 'Pray'? - Nice to hear from the Brotherhood.

Downloaded & installed nicely but without running some pretty intensive tests, difficult to know whether or not this prog has 'Securely' deleted and for most of us, secure deletion isn't needed.

Useful on a works computer, i guess, but thanks anyway and thanks to GAOTD for making this available.

Good:
- Easy and smooth installation.
- Easy registration via .key file.
- User friendly and easy to understand Button based menu
- Very informative and defining categories regarding browsers and Internet applications
- Nice:One button cleaup


Bad:
- Dangerous: It doesn't scan and present any reports before doing any cleanup, i.e on clicking "Scrub Now" it will start removing data.
- Un-Professional: A status bar is present behind the window showing Scrub status which half visible and half hidden behind Status window. Looks like the programmer forget to cleanup / give final finishing touch to this application.
- Un-Professional: Tried to add in windows startup without confirmation.



Rating: Average

Have you tried CCleaner? A free and excellent application which first analyze, present a report to user and give the user options to include/exclude/Customize files in cleanup process
