Five tools to clean Internet Explorer

Free Internet Eraser 1

 

2. Free Internet Eraser

Free Internet Eraser is a free tool for cleaning Windows and covering your tracks in Internet Explorer. This utility covers all of the basics, such as deleting browsing history, cookies, and temporary Internet files. A particularly nice feature is the Schedule option, which allows you to automate the clean up process. However, if you want the option of securely removing deleted items from your hard disk then you will have to upgrade to the professional version.

This is the app that I use ever day at the end of the day after I turn off all my other applications. It usually takes less that a minute, but it gets rid of all the temp file accumulation of the day. Along with other things, it makes my 2 1/2 year old Lenovo as fast as the day I got it. Everyone with a Window computer should use this at the end of each day before they turn their computer off for the evening.

Used this application for a long time. Used to be very userfriendly. But it failed me on my Windows 8. I was wondering how and why my Microsoft Kebboard and Mouse combination was not being detected for want of drivers. Tried my best to get drivers which also failed to be materialised. Sime file somewhere was missing. Step by step I had a re installation of Windows 8 and other appications. Untill installation of CCleaner was done there was no problem. Once ccleaner was run once. The Mouse and keboard disappeared. I do not know how this happens

Win 8 is a different kettle of fish which it appears give you a taste of the apple world of compatibility.
