Hi Veeman, Ccleaner has a good tutorial which explains what it will clean and it can be set to secure delete with 3 or 7 passes. It will remove your surfing tracks and much more. Can you explain further what you mean by "scanned"?

Hi Buddy 215,

What do you mean by 3 or 7 passes ?

I think that they do audits or screens on the hard disk of each machine.

Thanks for the help.

regards
Veeman

Do you mean like you go to a certain website and don't want anyone to know that you ever went there? Like through the address bar because it remembers recently typed addresses. Then yes it does.
Legend has it that... If you put an AOL disc the opposite way and play it you can hear devilish music... Even worse if you put it the right way... IT INSTALLS AOL!

The more passes the harder it will be to recover info from the harddrive. Of course, if you have never run a cleaner there may be a large volume to delete and it can take several minutes the first time. Keep in mind, if you have deleted info before without overwriting it several times Ccleaner want help. More than likely if you have been using this computer for more than a few days there is already deleted info from logs, temporary files. etc. already on your harddrive. I hope I am not helping you do something criminal.

Be very careful when using CCleaner, or you could end up deleting files needed by some applications on your computer. There are simplier ways that involve configuring the defaults of your browser that will be almost as effective, and not have any dire consequences.
