Protect your personal privacy with this exceptionally thorough security tool

PrivaZer is a surprisingly powerful privacy tool which can reveal the many traces of activities left on your PC, before helping to clear them up.

After running a thorough scan of our system drive (potentially a lengthy process, taking 1:57 even on our relatively unpopulated 240GB SSD), the program produced a detailed report of areas which required cleaning: everything from cookies, browser and instant messaging history, to the MFT, drive free space, our Registry and even RAM.

There's a huge amount of information here. Curious about your Registry issues, for instance? Click Registry > Traces and you'll see the program has run a low-level scan of your Registry keys: on our system this successfully identified a host of programs we'd uninstalled long ago.

The "MFT" and "free space" sections are similarly thorough, revealing the names of deleted files. JumpList scans detail the applications you've run and the files you've opened. And even apparently obvious sections, like "Cookies", are packed with information, listing regular and Flash cookies, DOM storage and more for multiple browsers.

And once you've finished browsing, all discovered traces can be overwritten with a click. Or you can have the data securely wiped using multiple passes, using one of seven industry-standard algorithms - it's your call.

PrivaZer 3.0.24 (changelog) brings these changes:

- Improved IE / Edge cleanup
. Improved Cache cleanup
- Improved advanced options
. registry settings now stored for portable version of PrivaZer
- Improved registry cleanup
- Improved uninstall process

Verdict:

PrivaZer is an amazingly thorough and detailed privacy tool. Even if you're using something else to clear away your PC traces right now, download it, give your system a scan and see what it can find.

Works nicely

Easy to use interface, installs as portable exe, and did a great job finding and cleaning out junk from my C: drive. I was a bit concerned that it would "overclean" and cause problems, but nothing of that sort happened. And it gives you the option of creating a restore point automatically before it cleans. Good programming.

Awesome product!

After using Ccleaner, followed by Glary Utilities, PrivaZer foung another 8 Gigs of stuff to remove. I was astounded to see what the others left behind. Highly recommend this one!

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
