editor's review





Shred It! - Search and Destroy is a lightweight software application that is able to delete unwanted files and registry entries created by malware, browser add-ons, toolbars, adware, or other types of viruses.

Portable running mode

You can take advantage of the tool’s portability status and run it on the target computer without having to go through an installation process. What’s more, you can store it on USB flash drives or other portable devices to carry it with you all the time. No settings files are left on the host PC. A quick deletion process is sufficient for getting rid of the utility.

Straightforward design

Shred It! - Search and Destroy sports a clean layout that embeds only a few configuration settings. A help manual is not included in the package but the application shows some succinct descriptions about its advanced functions.

Search capabilities

You are given the possibility to look for files and registry entries with an exact name or search for items that contain a certain word or phrase in the name. In addition, you can specify the drive letter.

What’s more, Shred It! - Search and Destroy helps you delete registry entries and files, as well kill the processes containing the searched keyword. This way, you can terminate malware or virus executable files that keep launching in the background.

Bottom line

All things considered, Shred It! - Search and Destroy is useful in case you got stuck with toolbars, malware, or other malicious viruses on your computer that cannot be uninstalled because they are not present in the Control Panel. The only problem is that the program has not been updated for a while so you can make use of its capabilities especially on older operating systems like Windows XP, Vista, 7, ME, and NT.
