Read an in-depth analysis in our professional review for Powerful Cookies
Removing all traces of your Internet browsing or of application activity and local history might not seem such a big deal, but it can actually be quite cumbersome, especially when thousands of such tiny files pile up.
Powerful Cookies is a software solution designed to help you in this regard, as it can remove temporary files and all the other data created while using the computer, not only protecting the privacy, but also freeing some computer space.
Basically, the program can do everything when it comes to cleaning. It can work with Windows items, Internet applications, third party tools and some custom items that might take up valuable space on your PC.
Of course, you can choose to either use just one of the aforementioned tools or all of them in the same time, thus getting a full scan of the computer. Just as expected, the number of unnecessary files it discovered during our test was huge, so the cleaning process took a couple of minutes.
The only downside we've found was the fact that there's no ''select all'' button, so at first glance it may seem that in order to remove all temporary files you have to click on each of the thousands of items. However, there is a simple workaround for that: simply use the Ctrl + A keyboard shortcut.
As soon as the cleaning process is complete, Powerful Cookies will display a summary and you can view how many items have been erased, how many were ignored and if there are any impossible to remove objects.
All things considered, Powerful Cookies remains an solid application that can be an excellent choice for anyone who want to clean their computers fast and easy. The good feature pack and many customizable options, including scheduling capabilities and advanced shredding methods, will meet the needs of most users.
