Sure it does - To securely delete files in CCleaner - click on the 'Options' button, then 'Settings' then the Secure Deletion options are shown.
Select 'Secure File Deletion' and the methods can be selected from the drop down box (from 1 Pass, to 35 Pass Overwrites)

Hope that Helps you,

Based on some of the comments here I downloaded and ran CCcleaner. I sure wish I had downloaded the GOTD instead.

CCcleaner will not scrub erased files to render them unrecoverable. And yes, there are legitimate reasons you would want a program that does this.

Hi All,

Do not waste mony in this. You will get lots of free tools to clean. you can go for Dclean and Ccleaner. i will prefer to go for Dclean tool which is freely available in google.

#79, americanineu, you might take a look at PortableApps (free), MojoPac (available free, but the paid version is the secure version, XP only), and Ceedo (Personal with Argo, and Personal Beta, commercial). The only one I've tried is Ceedo, it worked but was painfully slow. Obviously, the PC will need a USB 2.0 port. These will generally work from USB 2.0 flash drives, as well as USB 2.0 devices which Windows recognizes as USB drives, including external hard drives, iPods, some MP3 players, some cell phones, etc.

ya. just another program preying on the fear of people and trying to eploit that fear. as for "scrubbing" the recycle bin... theres eraser which is open source. but usually theres always outstanding free alternatives to junk like this as well as erasers and such. as was given away here before, such as glary utilities.

Does anyone know of a program similar to this or Window Washer, etc that is capable of being entirely 100% portable? That is, I'm in the military and in Iraq. We use public computers here and while I don't look at anything illegal, I am married and do look at a few things that I would call *private*. Is there a cleaner program like this I can run entirely from a stick that will clean the public computers history? (the public computers don't allow direct access to the appropriate folders obviously, but perhaps a good program like this could get them depending on how the Admin set it up- worth a shot) Thanks to everyone who leaves good detailed feedback every day, having limited time and bandwidth here, you make my life a lot easier!

Ladies and Gentlemen, please, I ask you, stop saying CCleaner does all what this program does and more. It does not. There are a few features Secure Evidence Scrubber has that CCleaner does not.

But CCleaner is a better program for what it does do - and there are other programs you can supplement CCleaner with to get all the functionality of Secure Evidence Scrubber without actually having to install it.

Thank you.

I agree with most here that CCleaner does this quite nicely. To charge for a product that can be obtained for free elsewhere doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
One thing I will mention. On two of the systems I tested this product on (both XP machines) the installation created an invalid registry entry called SES in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENT VERSION\RUN.

I tried the software and have determined this software is a keeper. For the following reasons, The option when you right click on the trash bin to use the Scrubber option. I did disable the program from starting at windows start cause the only part of the program i wish to use is the scrub from recycle bin option.

Some of you people should really look at the whole program before marking it as useless. I compared the ccleaner by running it first than ran this program and it picked up a whole lot more junk. There was also more features. But i guess some other people profit from the other programs.

Setup.exe and original installer didn't insert anything into registry.
Is this a 1 day trial ? Will see if it works tomorrow, if it will not, it will be removed and what's left of it cleaned using CCleaner. I hope I will not have to do this.

Thx for the link. I usto use a virtualization software when I worked with Linux. There was this really good one that was free, but unfortunately the name of it is slipping my tongue right now.

Its good to know that Returnil is free for personal use though. I will be sure to give it a shot if I ever need to.

I've been using CCleaner since before Piriform acquired it, when it was still known as "Crap Cleaner." It has always been free, and has always been good to me. I also make use of Glary Utilities (free) and Iobit's Advanced Windows Care Personal (free), which also provide this sort of functionality. As others have said, you've got to go easy with these cleaning tools, especially where the Registry's concerned. CCleaner has never steered me wrong. I swear by it.

I appreciate GOTD and their efforts to present something useful each and every day. However, CCleaner does all of this and more for free. Although my comment serves nothing more than kicking a dead horse, GOTD still deserves some thanks for trying. Keep up the good work and I'll be checking tomorrow.

With so many applications similar in fashion, it is difficult to recommend this without something that stands out from the rest.

Their marketing campaign appears to pray on peoples fears (http://www.arzoosoft.com/ses.php), in hopes to create an impulse purchase.

One of the things that is nice about this application is that there is a setting where it can automatically upon boot or shutdown, run its course to clear you system of "foot prints". Unfortunately, the feature isn't right up front where it can be set (it is in the settings).

The Wipe Algorithm used is adequate, but not exceptional. With newer technologies available to day and on the horizon for forensic data recovery, this application will not meet or exceed your expectations - some of your day may be recovered. There should be options for Gutmann (35 passes info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gutmann_method) and manual setting options (# of passes + data type/sequence)

Thus, I can not guarantee this as it does not provide enough security nor does it provide a simpler interface or other functionality that would make this stand above the rest. Price is OK at best.

I concur; to many free, better options out on the market. I too use CC Cleaner and some of my security tools have it built in too.

As an FYI, drives are made of platters that can shatter pretty easily. Thus, storage device can be physically destroyed by incineration, melting, shredding, pulverizing or other means that completely prevent data recovery. A hammer can provide some fun and stress relief while ensuring the NSA nor KGB can't read your data, ever.

Perhaps the developer will refine their terminology when they realize the disadvantages of using the word "evidence" and see that the word's implications may repel potential customers.

I downloaded this on my xp machine out of curiosity, although the only person I would hide anything from is my MOM and even that's only because she doesn't approve of some of the species of animals I research and have a lot of data and photos of and "hiding it would be easier than hearing it" so to speak.

Totally FWIW...

If you're using a public PC, &/or if you don't want to leave tracks, use one of the portable apps setups on a memory stick. If you want to limit someone tracking you online, use TOR. It's easy to set Firefox to automatically delete tracking info (history, cookies, cache etc) when you exit the browser. You can tell ie7 to delete most of the info on exit, set history to 0 etc., & can always right click the icon in the start menu, select properties, then click Delete under Browsing history -> this opens a dialog where you can delete everything. IF you're at work, just figure whatever you do is being tracked somewhere, & any email may be archived permanently, so don't do anything on a PC/laptop at work that you don't want in your bosses hands. It's not unheard of to even record everything being said with a mic attached to the PC.

Most programs can track which docs or images or whatever you've opened recently as a convenience. Usually this data is trivial, but if it bothers you many programs, like Windows Media Player, can be set to simply not record any history. Or of course you can use a program like today's Scrubber or CCCleaner etc, or if it's just one program's history you're worried about, if it keeps 5 docs in history for example, open up 5 innocent docs and close them.

Programs typically keep their list of Recently Opened files under that app's 1 or 2 software keys in the registry -- Windows itself logs pretty much everything you do in the mildly encrypted UserAssist keys. That said, it can be difficult (often requiring a manual search) if indeed it's possible to remove every trace of something from the registry... The only way to make 100% sure the registry isn't altered by a program or activity is to restore a backup, so if you're paranoid about someone finding out what you're about to do, or you're worried about a program or activity or web site making alterations, plan ahead and backup your registry 1st.

And, be aware of how files are stored on hard drives, each file filling up as many clusters as needed... If you take a quart of milk & start filling up glasses until the milk container's empty, the last glass may not be full. Storing a file in clusters works the same way -- the last cluster used may not be full. The unused space in that cluster however still contains data - whatever data was there before the cluster was partially overwritten. If you feel the need to be paranoid, don't just erase whatever files, but erase the freespace & these unused cluster tips or free space too. I use Eraser.

#35 - I have used various "cleaners" as well, and each seems to find something the other software didn't find -

#30 - If you used "cut and paste" for the quote you submitted I think #35 should email them his dictionary, if you copied the quote, I suggest you ask for the dictionary -

#45 and #39 - You both mentioned East Tech Eraser - I downloaded it once and it has placed itself in four locations on my computer, and on two different drives - it is like some sort of entity, and I am still trying to get rid of the 'slime' - oops I mean program

@Ashraf, #45:
You do a lot of work for this site. Though I do not always fully agree with your judgements I do respect your opinion and your efforts to contribute.
To judge a product ofcource needs a real test, but in this case you are concerned about trashing your pc. This is sound thinking ofcourse. Nobody should install every giveaway just because it is a giveaway.
You only end up trashing your pc by default, ... unless you take the right precautions.
When you want to install and test mostly everyday, using uninstallers and cleaners wil not be enough in the long run.
But to write your comments you have to do so.
Consider using Returnil (http://www.returnilvirtualsystem.com/).
There is a free version aswell and you will be able to do any testrun without leaving a trace or wrecking your pc.

The police need a warrant to seize a PC in the USA, otherwise all evidence retrieved is inadmissible in court. I work from home a lot and my research tends to load a bunch of stuff I want gone - permanently. Currently, I use cCleaner at start-up and TotalPrivacy5 at shut-down. Both must be PROPERLY set up to function as planned. I do not use IE and my Mozilla browsers are set to clean personal data on shut-down. Furthermore, Firefox3 still has issues and frequently requires a quick cClean in order to load. Judging by the comments here, I will not be downloading this one to my test machine but, I thank the GOTD team none-the-less. Keep up the good work.

Everyone basically has summed up all I have to say, so I will provide a kind of different angle to the story:

ArzooSoft Solutions is a new company that was started in 2008. It is a company run by IT students pursuing their graduation from Kolkata, India. Now there is nothing wrong with IT students from India, nor is there anything wrong with software written by college students, but I for one am not ready to trust the security of my computer to students when there are more viable alternatives out there. Not to mention there is no phone number for contact on the company's website, and the only email for contact is a @gmail.com email.

I installed this program, but I have yet to use any of its features. This program is almost identical to WinUtilities, which was a giveaway earlier. And the thing is, with program like these, you really want to be careful because these programs can really mess up your computer by deleting important files. Meaning if you delete something by accident, something important, you are bound to have to reinstall your windows. So, I am not willing to trust this software yet - if you google it you will find almost no feedback on it. When there are viable and more reliable alternatives, you should not use this software either:

WinUtilities
CCleaner + Recuva + Eraser

I have several cleanup programs, like Evidence eliminator, CCleaner, Cleanup, window washer, and a couple more.

For cleaning up a community or multiple user pc, I use cleanup.
It will clean everyone's profile and temp files.

For those stubborn (_Restore_xxxxxxxxxx) files, evidence eliminator rips them right out. (I haven't had much luck with other programs being able to do that). [I got in on it at a very good discount,not the $149 that EE ususally sells for]

I downloaded today's offer and will give it a try.

4 of 5 stars at Softpedia is good in my book. It does all this & more + I prefer it to CCleaner. Just a personal preference because it's never damaged a system on me where CCleaner has, all be it 4 years ago. Both good, both completely free! It just comes down to an individuals personal preference. It's surely, worth reading. I'm passing on todays offer simply because I don't need another one or a 24 hour license!
