Do you want to know the best way to make sure your internet browsing and computer usage history is protected? Make sure it isn't there for anyone to find!

East-Tec Eraser protects you from identity theft and breaches of confidential information by securely erasing all evidence of your online activity and computer usage! With East-Tec Eraser, you'll wipe away your browser history, cached web pages, pictures, cookies, chat room conversations, deleted files, even AutoComplete entries!

If you're transferring ownership of a computer, CD, or flash drive, you'll appreciate East-Tec Eraser's ability to securely erase entire drives and disks. Using an algorithm that meets and exceeds the U.S. Department of Defense standards for the permanent erasure of digital information, East-Tec Eraser guarantees that the files that you delete are permanently gone and unrecoverable. You can even set East-Tec Eraser to run on a regular schedule, ensuring that your privacy is always protected even if you forget to run the program manually.

Not only does East-Tec Eraser handily erase all usage histories from your favorite internet browsers and applications, it also gives you the benefit of a cleaner, leaner machine with improved performance as a result! All of those temporary system files take up space and cause sluggishness - once they're gone, you'll see a spring in your computer's step.

Bob S I have 2 old laptops and a desktop that I'd like to give away, but haven't had time to permanently delete files and other confidential info. Two questions:
1. Can East-Tec be used to quickly delete the contents of entire folders? e.g., My Documents
2. Can East-Tec be used on more than 1 PC? or do I have to purchase a copy for each of the PCs from which I wish to delete info.

S B East-Tec Eraser has been well reviewed or mentioned on both application and security sites and in security forums for its ability to clear files and the various traces of previous activities. This is fortunate because East-Tec seems to say little about what their product actually does. When security is concerned, "trust us with the benefits" doesn't cut it.

Eraser 2009 apparently has features that go beyond those of the popular Window Washer, though I cannot find several important features (e.g., wiping slack space and destroying old filenames) directly mentioned on their website (and what is that gratuitous list of files in their first screenshot?). Further, in the absense of real information from East-Tec, it is probably true that many of their security claims may just be that the product can overwrite files many times in various ways.

The company has been around for years. In the past, the company apparently responded to criticisms (about its arrogantly wiping things without first telling the user what it was going to wipe) directly by improving the product and providing the missing information (or making it available) before wiping.

For me, even with Bob's important questions not yet answered, this is an opportunit to purchase a very good product (from what others have said) at a great discount. It does look like a winner.

(Nonetheless, always be careful about what you do with your computer!)

Many thanks!

George Pecherle First of all, we would like to apologize for the delay in answering the questions above.

Regarding the questions from Bob S:

1. Yes, you can securely destroy the contents of entire folders. Just open East-Tec Eraser 2009 and from the main interface, click Add Files & Folders, and then Add Folders.

2. You have to purchase one copy for each of the computers where you want to wipe information from.

Regarding the message from S B: thank you for the kind words about our product. We will review our documentation from our website to improve it and we'll also take your ideas into consideration.

Thank you once again for your interest in our products. If you need further help, please feel free to contact us from:

Best regards,
George Pecherle
