Clean you Windows - and Keep them Clean
When you see something called a “Window Washer,” you probably immediately think of something to help you clean those dirty car or house windows. But your dirtiest windows are those on your computer. Do you realize how clogged up a computer can get through normal operation?
Think about these areas that simply collect junk:
And this list goes on and on. Everything you do on your computer is being tracked, logged and listed somewhere. PC repair software does a great job of fixing the problems that are sometimes caused by these lists and piles of data. Spyware removal programs do their job making sure that we do not get unauthorized files and programs on our hard drive.
However, normal day-to-day operation is going to pile on the files and data and simply clog your computer. For some of you, it might be a matter of privacy. Do you really want your computer to show every file you have opened? To keep stored every username and password you entered? To show every website you have visited today and in recent weeks? To show what you are downloading?
All of your online and offline activities are being tracked and can be accessed by anyone. What are your solutions?
There are some manual solutions you can do:
For example, you can periodically delete your Internet cache. If you use Internet Explorer, then you can do this by going to Tools – Internet Options – Delete Files (under Temporary Internet Files); then, when that’s done, clicking the Clear History button will accomplish a few more things: all of the cached Internet pages on your hard drive will be removed and the history of sites visited recently will disappear.
The problem with manual solutions is that you’d have to perform steps just like this about a dozen different places on your computer to wash away all traces of your computer and Internet activity.
If you do that on a regular and perhaps daily basis, you will boost the performance of your computer substantially. However, you’re probably looking at 15 – 30 minutes a day in effort.
The solution is to automate this whole process. With Webroot Window Washer, you can clean your entire computer. The software will automatically clean up your Internet files, history, cache, cookies and drop-down address bar. It will scour windows and clean up your clipboard, files opened, WordPad, registry, viewed files, downloads and more. It will secure and hide a list of your favorite websites along with the usernames and passwords for those websites.
Need to permanently get rid of a file or folder? No problem for Window Washer. The files that are so easily recoverable if you delete them from Windows Explorer in your operating system are rendered unrecoverable and cannot be restored if you instead use Window Washer.
What’s more, with over 200 free, pre-configured plug-ins, you can have Window Washer scrub and clean files and history from over 200 different popular software packages you might have installed. Just think about all the work and effort if you had to do this yourself.
