Clean your PC and Protect your Privacy

Written By: Jason Frovich

We might not realise it, but everything we do on our computers create impressions and can be traced; even weeks, months and years afterwards. Documents we have read, letters weve written to friends and co-workers, pictures and film clips weve viewed, web sites weve visited etcetera.

If your computer is shared, sold, hacked or in any other way falls into the hands of others your privacy may be at risk. Today our computers are filled with information that its absolutely imperative to keep private; including access codes, credit card details, business secrets, and financial reports.

One other side effect of keeping all these files on your computer is that they use up valuable hard drive space, thus preventing you from saving those files you actually wish to keep, like films and photos. Filling your computer to the brim with unnecessary information will also eventually slow down the systems overall performance.

The best way of securing your privacy and improve performance is by regularly cleaning your computer from all undesired and unnecessary files. Information is stored at several places all over the computer, including cache memory, cookies, history, recent documents list, and more. To be sure that you find and clean all these spots, its advisable to take advantage of one of the so called cleaning programs available to aid you with this. A good cleaning program should however not only delete files in the way you are able to do manually, but instead overwrite them with new information. Simply deleting files will not erase them from your hard disk; it only makes it a little trickier to retrieve them.

One of the programs able perform overwriting is The Webroot Window Washer. This program will completely overwrite your undesired files with random characters making them unrecoverable by undelete or unerase utilities.

One other user friendly characteristic of the Webroot Window Washer is the Customized User Interface. Select the interface that best matches your comfort and experience level.
