Softpedia Editor's Review for Windows & Internet Cleaner Pro
Powerful and easy to use internet surfing privacy protection & PC security software
Written by Bogdan Popa on May 30th, 2012
Windows & Internet Cleaner Pro is a powerful software solution created to clean your computer of Internet tracks and remove unnecessary files.
The program was developed to be easy to use, so the tabbed layout should really come in handy. It lets you quickly select the items to be removed, but also configure other built-in features.
As you may find out by reading its name, Windows & Internet Cleaner Pro can remove unnecessary Windows and browsing data, such as temporary files, browsing history, cookies, visited and typed URLs, AutoComplete forms data, AutoComplete passwords and downloaded program files history.
Windows & Internet Cleaner Pro comes with dedicated tabs for the most popular browsers on the Internet, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, AOL and Opera.
As for Windows, the program finds, detects and removes recent documents list, Windows Clipboard content, the SWAP file, CHK items, registry streams, open/save history and recent file list of Paint, Wordpad and Media Player.
A scheduler is also available to schedule scans for a later time, and so is a file shredded to securely remove data from your computer without the risk of getting it recovered.
Shortcut keys are supported too, but it's at least as important to mention that Windows & Internet Cleaner Pro can be automatically loaded at Windows startup and perform a cleanup at both boot and shutdown.
The overall system performance shouldn't be affected, regardless of the Windows flavor running on your system, and it's recommended to launch it with administrator privileges to safely remove all files.
All things considered, Windows & Internet Cleaner Pro is a very handy piece of software that can free up space on the hard drive and remove browsing data. A more user-friendly GUI could probably help, but it's still intuitive enough to be aimed at both beginners and more experienced users.
