PrivateData Eradicator Portable Beta 1 (Testers Needed).

I made this little app to eradicate private data Window$ makes. This app eradicates the Recent Documents, stuff in the Temp folder and in the Temporary Internet Settings.

It is release under the GPL. And of course this is gonna be released in my Suites.

The source is included with the app:

Linky: https://downloads.sourceforge.net/armogohmasuites/PrivateDataEradicatorP...
(May take a few mins to hit all servers)

Enjoy!

To do list:

-Use the nicer GUI
-Add options to decide what is eradicated
-Find more places where private data is made and stored (by Window$) and add options to have those eradicated (if anyone can tell me about more places, so far I have The Temporary Internet Files, TEMP and Recent Documents)

Maybe list:

-Add an option to use Eraser Portable for the eradication
-Have it eradicate the recently used exe values/keys in the Registry (if anyone can tell me if that can be done on a Limited account in Win2K,WinXP, and Vista).

Cool App

but

  • the installer has only Johns Copyright.
  • Maybe you want the user to be able to chose what he wants to rease and then you could include the temp folder.

Ok Thanx

1. What do you mean that "the installer has only John's Copyright"?

2. I am working on that.

Im not sure

But the Installer source code only has John T. Hallers Copyright and I thought you'd have to add yours cause you modified it.

No I don't think thats how it works

just cause I modified it does not mean I created it, John said something similar like that in another thread.

It looks like a neat program. I would love to see an option for it to use eraser portable.

Recycle Bin

I don't know if there is a way for you to get the time/date PAM was run, but if there is it might be cool if your app could delete anything that was added to the Recycle Bin after that time.

I don't think NSIS can do that, this app works by deleting

directories and recreating them. But as dangerous as this sounds this app is safe, since I tested it on my machine, and this works in a limited account, but becareful on a guest account, I guess I will have to test this in Virtualbox.
