privacy security clean-up

Download CCleaner
CCleaner from Piriform is a small application that cleans your Windows computer, protects your privacy and keeps your personal information more secure. Most computers that have slowed to a snail's pace will race along as they used to after CCleaner gets done taking out the trash.

This tool is very simple to use and installation takes just seconds. It has a simple and attractive interface that is very user friendly and easy to understand. Once installed, it takes less than one second to run. CCleaner removes temporary files, your surfing history, cookies, download history, form history, autocomplete form history and index.dat files. It can discern which cookies you may want to keep like those for Yahoo and Google. By cleaning away all traces of your online activities and your internet history, CCleaner frees up disk space that would otherwise be inhabited by obsolete files and other objects that you no longer use or want.

CCleaner works with nearly any browser including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, Netscape Navigator, SeaMonkey and more.

Once you run CCleaner you'll be rid of old and unused entries such as file extensions, ActiveX Controls, uninstallers, help files, application paths, invalid shortcuts and more. It also comes with a full-featured registry cleaner and manages restore points. It is customizable so you can pick which problems to search for and which to ignore. Just check or uncheck the options you want to keep or delete and click Analyze. CCleaner will then tell you how much space you'll regain and ask for permission to precede.

CCleaner is small, easy to install and run and frees up disc space so that you can keep what matters to you and get rid of impediments that slow down your computer.
