@Doug:That question has been asked and will be asked and answered, a good many times on this Forum...ignore the "Social Media" aspect of the site.

In layman terms.....Install/Un-install via re-boot takes place in a 'virtual environment', so no possible harm or changes are made to your system, it is a safety net as it were, to test software. If everything works out okay, you then have the option to full install on your 'actual system' with some measure of safety and confidence, all things being relative.

Further to my comment (#5) on the illegible GUI:
Night has fallen here. Aided by the darkness, I did manage (with also the aid of a magnifyer app) to register the software and check/uncheck the relevant settings.

I find it ironic that the the setting "User Interface" allows for a choice (!) between BLACK and BLACK.

Have a "REGISTER" button or "REGISTER SOFTWARE" link visible on the opened, running software. Otherwise, the installed version offered today, is the regulat free version and lots of people will think its the PRIVACY ERASER PRO 3 version, wghich it is not.

I finally found where a person can enter the REGISTRATION info...not in a normal place one would consider.

1. In upper right hand corner of this software (opened, running),....under:

"Security Options" (highlighted in blue) you need to click.

2. A REGISTER pop-up appears where you can then enter: REGISTRATION NAME, & 2-part REGISTRATION KEYS.

3. Then it changes from "FREE VERSION" to "PRO 3" version.

FYI and comment to improve the registration process.

Morning ALL - Installed on both of my physical partitions, Win 8.1.2 & Win 10 TP9926, no problems with either - did complete scan of Win10 partition & allowed the program to "fix" all of the files & registry entries it found and it looked like nothing happened, UNTIL I rebooted & the program had removed my ability to un-install Win10 TP 9926 which had been in my boot menu since I started this experiment - Oooppssss.... Guess I will be sticking to either/or for the rest of a while (lol). Like the GUI, used this before, BUT as mentioned before - BE CAREFUL, this does take it TOO far sometimes, so KNOW what you are deleting before it's too late. Other then that, very nice offering today, thank you to GOTD & Cybertron Software for making it happen. For me - it is a keeper!

Wait & see what the software does when you get the 'real' Windows 10. The inability to refresh your install, or go back to a point, as you pointed out above.

Installed on a Windows 8.10 Pro 64Bit System, without any problems..with (2) two license keys to add, maybe I should feel I am getting something really special, should I?

Anyway, I ran the program, there are parameters to set, basics would indicate that you carefully select same.
The software does what it claims, it comes with a host of other features, and that did not make me feel I am getting anything really special. I don't need to "feel I am getting anything really special"
However, I do need to know that the software does what it claims, but that's just me I guess!

Thank You Cybertron Software Co. and GAOTD!

How-to geek articles are sometimes somewhat exaggerating. In the article pccleaners with a registry cleaner module and the claim that speed will be improved is adressed. This program emphasizes the privacy issue. Like ccleaner this program is not snake oil(like the article states); it will get rid of temporary and privacy related files, as it claims to do. It has some use.

Checking out the Cybertronsoft.com website and looking under FAQ's, I found the following comment which may be of interest to some:

What happens after the license period expires?
Privacy Eraser Pro will automatically downgrade to the Free edition. You can always download the latest updates from our website at any time of your convenience.

What "license period expires", what/which software are you speaking about?

Notwithstanding your observation...
In the About dialog box of this current software (Privacy Eraser Version: 3.5.4 Build 1132 (64 Bit) being offered here, today, now it states:

License Information

License Name: Giveawayoftheday

License Type: Professional Edition

Sometimes, doing too much cleaning could make Windows and programs unstable. Uncheck everything, check only what you're sure or what's safe.

This is why you have to get your hands dirty and know how software work (registry, %APPDATA% folder, etc). Here come tools such as BleachIt, CCleaner, System Ninja.They won't cost you a cent, they are portable, some are open source, some run on several OS's, they all can be finely customized.

That said, this GOTD seems a good product. While it accepts a relatively limited set of third-party plugins I'm not sure the standard settings can be modified. Special features: real-time monitoring, multi-user profile cleaning (including administrator account?).

Interestingly, the free version could be what you want (see comparison chart):

- Security Level. The multipass wiping is not a + since it has been demonstrated that it is not necessary. And you won't want to do multipass writing on SSD, will you?

- Automatic Updates. Not for GOTD. I reckon the free version will always be up-to-date.

- Priority 24/7 Technical Support. Not for GOTD. But you probably don't need it.

- Commercial use. Not for GOTD. No licensing information -> commercial use not forbidden

Anyway, I won't discourage you to try this GOTD ---if you like the interface.

For those who can not read the gray text or having a too dark UI: You might think about that these programs are developed with professional equipment. I had much experience with calibrating my monitor for photo editing / video presentation, so I would say that you can proof your monitor settings with these "mistaken" user interfaces.

A comprehensive cleaner with a pleasant, although non-resizable, user interface. It has an abundance of options including those pertinent to YOUR particular installed programs. As most anyone will tell you ‘to be used with a certain amount of caution’.

BE SURE to turn off ‘Automatically check for updates to Privacy Eraser’. Click ‘Settings’ button at the very TOP right side of the first window. Then you will find it under the sub-category ‘Automation’.

Whilst on this screen, also under ‘Automation’ I highly recommend you turn off ‘Automatically clean at Windows startup’ at least until you have checked and understood all your options.

Of lesser importance but a matter of personal preference, I uncheck ‘Load at Windows startup’.

A hardy ‘thumbs up’ and ‘thanks’ from me.

Brian... Do you use Kaspersky Internet protection? If so, it is a known issue that downloads from GOTD will not install. Kaspersky strips out the .gcd (I think that's the correct letters; it's extra security put in by GOTD so the files can't have a virus added). The only way to get around it is to disable Kaspersky to not have it load on boot and restart computer, download GOTD and install, then restart Kaspersky.

I have Kaspersky AV 14 on a Win XP Pro computer and I have no problem downloading GOTD files.
To install the programs however, I've found I need to disable KAV momentarily so that it proceeds fine. Then I re-enable protection.

free, stable, and widely used for a long time
CCleaner with CCEnhancer
or for those more technically inclined
Bleachbit
Both give you full control of what gets removed and not removed.

I want to thank GAOTD team for offering this product free, I was looking for such kind of software only. I agreed with Mr. William that product had very dark GUI, they should change it. Because, nowadays people like attractive interface...While rest features are fine...

Extremely illegible black GUI. I therefore could not register, nor uncheck any undesirable options (cf. comment 2 above - automatic update, automatic clean at windows startup).
Because of the latter, I uninstalled before the program did any (unintended) harm.

If the options include a possibility to change to a legible skin, I would appreciate it if someone would tell me roughly (coordinates in the window) how to find that option.

Do not use "cleaners" blindly in global mode.
Sometimes they clean up things that should not be deleted.

Do NOT allow it to "clean" up dat files globally.

Your programs have a unins000.dat files in each software folder.
Once you let a too aggressive "cleaner" wipe this out, your Revo Uninstall or any other uninstall software cannot proceed.

Bingo.. I was testing out some "portable" versions of cleaner's and defrags. Somewhere between Wise Disk Cleaner portable, Ultra defrag, Slim computer and CCleaner, made my pc unbootable. Didn't matter as it was going to be a media center PC anyway and all the wife's data had been moved. I just wanted to see how much the system couldn't handle before it crashed. Just like anti-biotics. Too much of a good thing can be bad. use with caution.. unless your just wanted to learn.

I tried this program earlier as it has positive reviews on many forum from users end , useful program obviously but actually I feel more comfort in using PrivaZer and Shellbag Analyzer & Cleaner
alongside the excellent CCleaner
and Glary Tracks Eraser -http://www.glarysoft.com/tracks-eraser/

Thanks to Gotd for the offer.

FWIW Shellbag Analyzer functionality is built into Privazer. You don't need both.

For Privazer THANKS should be given to MR. Giovanni (The King of Freebies ). Following this forum for more than just 5 years. Like most others I have always strictly followed Giovanni's every altrenative freeware recommendation. Though not everytime I liked his all but few recommended Programs but Certainly 'Privazer' is one of those programs which has satisfied me so much for which I should acknowledge Mr. GIOVANNI .
As I generally use the portable version of all browsers and 'Privazer' has the ability to handle the portable version of major Browsers , just locate the browser in the explorer. There is full scope of selection of the items in every field before scanning and cleaning. It is just flawless in one word. It never did any harm .

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1.3 Pro 64 bit system. Two license keys to add? A clean install, some more regkeys due to context integration.

A company without name and address. "Cybertron Software, formerly known as PrivacyEraser Computing (© 2002-2012), is a leading company exclusively focused on the privacy protection, PC cleaning and performance optimization solutions for home and business computer users."

We had had Privacy Eraser Pro 2.2.0 on May 7, 2014. Here are the old reviews:
http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/privacy-eraser-2-2-0/

Upon start the nowadays usual dark, non resizable window opens. In the options you should disable the automatic update, and never ever allow an automatic clean at windows startup.

A quick scan shows a lot of "privacy" issues - starting from the cache of Google Earth Pro to registry keys and values of Adobe Reader.

Oops, what is that? I cannot see, what are the privacy issues of the Adobe Reader, I cannot even force to skip this. I have only the option of clean, clean and restart (in this window)
http://i.imgur.com/okHQRWw.png

If I don't want to delete registry keys of Adobe Reader (probably MRU lists, but don't see that), you have to disable the search in the application section:
http://i.imgur.com/ATa1s3F.png

Take care of what you want to do!

In a short test, it does what it claims. I don't see anything better, than the well known freeware tools. The high price tag gives you the feeling of having something really special.

Uninstalled via reboot, don't need an additional cleaner, who doesn't tell me, what he would clean.

I'm not as technically astute as some here, including yourself, of course, so what I'd like to know is, what does it mean to "uninstall via reboot? I don't understand how just rebooting would uninstall a program. How come ALL programs aren't uninstalled when one reboots then? I'm sure I'll get down voted about 50 times for asking this question, but that doesn't mean anything to me, as I need to ask it here of someone who has made the comment.

Doug,
Karl test software using a "virtual environment" (like Toolwiz's Timefreeze or Shadow Defender or Sandboxie) Instead of actually installing to your hard disk, the software is installed in this 'virtual environment' in Ram memory, so once you reboot the computer the virtual environment is erased from memory and thus "uninstalled via reboot". To learn more, do a web search for the programs named above; and for 'sandboxing' software, virtual environments and virtual machines. Also, good places to start your "education" are dottech.org and techrepublic.com. If you decide to give this a try, my recommendation is start with Toolwiz/Timefreeze. It is freeware and their website has lots of useful help and guidance.
Hope this helps, ErnieBell
