Windows Washer runs in the background to clean up your tracks when you're done surfing the Net or any other time you choose.
Many people don't realize that Microsoft Windows, Internet Explorer, Netscape, NeoPlanet and America Online as well as many other software products store information about what they've been doing on their computer systems. An extensive cache record is kept, that takes the form of a directory structure with local files, and another that keeps track of the visited URLs. This includes what documents they have used, which pictures they have viewed, which web sites they have visited, and various other activities they have been performing. Anyone can simply turn on your system and see exactly what you have been doing on your computer. This can infringe on an individual's privacy. Worse yet, if those files are inspected by a spyware or trojan program, the whole contents can be sent outside and recorded in an external server that accurately profiles personal interests.
Also, the tracks that are left behind can take up large quantities of valuable hard drive space. Recovering this space can be very beneficial by improving the overall speed and performance of a computer.
Cleaning up the history of your activities can be a tedious chore of manually removing each history file or entry. If privacy and disk space are to be maintained, this process must be performed every time you use your computer. Windows Washer can automatically clean up your browser's cache, cookies, history, recent document list, and much more.
