Total Privacy

At a Glance
  • Generic Company Place Holder Total Privacy

Total Privacy is a comprehensive tool that will clean your system of just about any data or information you can imagine. As a start, it cleans potentially privacy-invading information and files such as cookies, your browser cache, temporary files, and your browsing history. But it doesn't stop there. It also cleans many kinds of application data as well, including from Microsoft Office and Outlook Express.

Also included is a shredder that will not just delete files, but "shred" them so that they can't be reconstructed. You can also wipe any free space on your drive, to eliminate any file remnants.

The only potential drawback to this program is its price. For example, the free program Ccleaner does everything this program does, except for shredding files and wiping free space. So if you don't need those extra features, it's not worth paying for this program.
