Virtually everything you do on a PC is stored in activity logs or leaves a trail, even long after it’s been “cleared.”

System Mechanic ensures your privacy

Choose what traces of activity
to permanently remove
  • Employs multi-pass military-grade wiping to ensure complete removal of all deleted data
  • Defeats forensics recovery techniques
  • Permanently and completely removes internet history and cache
  • Integrates Incinerator® technology with Windows Recycle Bin for high security
  • Cleans up after all major web browsers, online chat, and web toolbars

Why deleting, emptying, and clearing are not enough

Savvy PC users know to “clear the cache and browser history” as a basic privacy precaution, but most are unaware of the multitude of locations where common programs leave a vivid trail of activity that can be financially or personally devastating in the wrong hands.

Deleted files are not really erased – their space is simply marked “available” by Windows, and their contents can persist for months or years, even after you empty the Recycle Bin or format your hard disk!

Wipe files and purge activity logs the right way

Activity log tracks left by dozens of new programs as you use them can be safely and securely wiped away by the improved Privacy Cleaner™ tool in System Mechanic, which now leverages military-grade Incinerator® multi-pass data shredding technology.
