Hi,

I am currently using Web Root's Windows Washer to wash/destroy my browser history and other related browser fields as well as to permanently delete my files in Windows.

Does anyone have a application they recommend that can do a better job?

Thanks!

in private browsing is not an app. It's a feature that's built into all the latest browsers.

IE's version: http://windows.micro...ures/in-private

Firefox: https://wiki.mozilla...PrivateBrowsing

Chromes is called "incognito mode" - http://www.google.co...incognito-mode/

Remove the internal hard drive, use a LiveCD linux distribution to browse the internet over a TOR connection, and melt down the RAM modules afterwards. It's a little expensive, but it's entirely secure.

And just a bit extreme...

This comes with an uninstaller that also has a 'shredder' feature which you can do to DOD standards which deletes and overwrites the file 7 times or the overkill method which does it 35 times... Just have to right click the file and click shredder then choose your desired deletion method.

Edit: The link takes you to http://www.iobit.com...temcareper.html which is a system cleaner basically.

Or you could try CCleaner as nyphonejacks suggests, I used to use it but it kept deleting certain registry files I actually needed and would thus fuck my system until I reinstalled whatever driver was missing the file, usually graphics drivers.

This link here might also be of some interest: https://ssd.eff.org/tech/deletion
