Go to the home page first because there is an updated version to download. For anyone who does lots of downloading from the net,especially those of us with little computer know-how, this program is a MUST-HAVE!!! 

Shareware reviewers are a classic example of people who truly NEED a program like this. We all download things just to have a look at them, not necessarily to keep. Then we delete it, not realizing that bits and pieces of the download are still stashed all over the place in our computers. Unless you're a computer whiz, you have no clue how to get rid of all this clutter!! With this program, you don't HAVE to know!!! Just install it and schedule it to clean at a specific time or at start-up or shut-down of your computer. It goes through your browsers, cache, cookies, history, Windows recycle bin, temporary directory, Netscape Internet Explorer, and AOL Internet files. It cleans out all the "garbage" we leave behind as we surf the net!! This frees up tons of hard drive space and keeps your computer speed up!! 

You can tell it to keep specific cookies or use the plugin for Custom Wash of recently used lists and tracks and uneeded files from utilities like RealPlayer. You can change settings or do a "clean" anytime!! No more fumbling around all over your computer getting rid of leftover junk from every download!!! What used to take 30-45 minutes is done in seconds!!! 

RAVES for this one!!
