Windows CleanUp! – the quickest and easiest way to delete temporary files from your system
Introducing Windows CleanUp!, the easiest and quickest way to delete temporary files from your computer
CleanUp! is a powerful and easy-to-use application that removes temporary files created while surfing the web, empties the Recycle Bin, deletes files from your temporary folders and more.
CleanUp! frees disk space and reduces the “clutter” on your computer helping it to run more efficiently. It also can be used as a way to protect your privacy on the Internet. You can even instruct CleanUp! to securely delete files making it impossible to retrieve their contents using lower-level disk tools – just another way of protecting your privacy.
Here are some key features of “Windows CleanUp”:
· Supports all popular browsers. CleanUp! provides full support for the three most popular browsers used under Windows: Internet Explorer (versions 1.x-6.x), Netscape Navigator/Communicator (versions 1.x-6.x), Mozilla (1.x), Firefox (1.x) and Opera (versions 2.x-6.x).
· Supports all popular newsreaders. Newsreaders including Microsoft Internet Mail and News, Outlook and Outlook Express, Netscape Communicator and Operas newsreader are all supported. CleanUp! optionally empties the newsgroup caches for each of these and can, also optionally, remove all subscriptions to newsgroups.
· Removes Windows files tracking your use of the computer. This includes things such as removing “MRU lists” (storing a list of your Most Recently Used files) for various applications, emptying the Recent Documents folder, deleting entries from the Run and Find Computer dialogs, emptying Recycle Bins, emptying temporary folders, removing some unneeded registry entries, optionally resetting the high scores for Windows games, and more.
· Supports other applications too. Almost all Windows applications store information on your hard disk about your use of the program – even if this is as minor as an MRU list. CleanUp! includes support for a variety of commonly used Windows applications.
· Runs on 32-bit Windows. The same version of CleanUp! runs on Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT 4.0 Workstation, Windows NT 4.0 Server, Windows 2000 Professional, Windows 2000 Server, Windows 2000 Advanced Server, Windows XP Home, Windows XP Professional and Windows 2003 Server.
· Future proofed. What does this mean? By supporting user-defined (i.e. custom) directories and file specifications, CleanUp! 3.0 (and later) will be able to handle cleaning up of temporary files created by newer browsers and Windows applications.
· Secure file deletion. You can optionally choose to “Wipe Clean” files as they are deleted. This takes a little longer but instructs CleanUp! to overwrite the files several times before deleting them. This makes it almost impossible to recover those files from the hard disk using even the most advanced data recovery techniques, ensuring you the greatest degree of privacy.
· Free. That’s right, you can keep on using this program and it won’t expire. You are offered the chance to register CleanUp! and pay a price you think it is worth. Think of this payment as a tip – so please contribute something. This payment will help with the continued development of CleanUp! and allow me to make a living. This payment can be as low as $5 or as high as you wish. If you find CleanUp! useful and continue to use it, please register. See below for details.
· Fast. Remove hundreds, even thousands of files and free up many megabytes, and sometimes gigabytes of disk space all in a matter of minutes.
· Simplicity. A clean, simple interface – designed for novices, with an Options dialog allowing some flexibility for more experienced users.

· When running in demo mode, on systems with Internet Explorer 4.0 and later, cookies are partially deleted. (Actually the cookie files remain, but they get remove from the Windows index files so it appears as if they have been deleted.)
