This time around, I would like to land my hand on one of the software category which I had never reviewed before due to the reason that I am running a Christmas Shopping Guide and I believe that I should review as many products as possible from that list to ensure it is something worth buying.
The product for this review is East-Tec Eraser 2012 from East Technologies and basically it is a privacy cleaner software. What it does is it will remove everything away from your computer completely so that your privacy cannot be traced. You can put the use of this tool in this way.
You are using the computer for some sensitive stuff that you want to eliminate those data once you are done with it. What you will do is to delete those files and cleaning up your recycle bin next. But do you know the deleted file can actually be traced back? It is hidden somewhere and if you are not well educated with these stuff, it is best to have tools like East-Tec Eraser to do the thing.
But before jumping to the conclusion to buy this product or navigate away this page, why not check out what I think of this software this.
Firstly, the file size is pretty small and the installation is not taking too long to be completed. At the first sight of the installation process, everything is cool.
After the installation, I get into the main screen and it kind of gives me the feeling of Windows XP. It has quite an old fashion design but apart of that, everything is great. The functions are accessible right away from the main page and that is the main point of a software design.
Let’s get into the features of the software.
Securely Erase Tracks and Secrets
I think this is the purpose of the software which is to remove all your tracks in the computer. At times, when you delete a file or folder, that does not actually completely remove from your computer even you clean your recycle bin. That is because there is some sort of temporary files stored in your computer and you can remove them if you know where and how. However, not everyone wants to manage this thing and that is main use of this feature of this software.
Cleans all your browsers
Apart from managing your deleted files and folders of your system, this software also clean up your web browser’s data. Data such as history, temporary internet files, cache, and unwanted cookies are all able to be remove by this application. Again, you can also do it manually with some basic knowledge of cleaning up web browsers history but not everyone will want to manage this.
Cleans other applications as well
Apart from cleaning the deleted files and web browsers history, it cleans as well other applications. Applications such as Yahoo Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Outlook, Windows Media Player, and many more well known applications. One thing this application shows is that it is not just some simple privacy cleaner, but a very complete one.
A Secure Erasing
East-Tec Eraser has already meet and exceeded the industry standards for permanent erasure of digital information. Apart from that, it has also meet and exceed the Russian and German Government Security standards. Meeting a certain industry standard is best to use and proof the efficiency of a software.
East-Tec Eraser Pros and Cons
The cons of the software:
- The software is a little pricey.
- The graphical user interface is quite old fashioned.
- Although the software is easy to use, but it is not “super easy” where you might need to catch up some simple technical term to start using.
The pros of the software:
- It cleans your privacy to prevent people or hacker from tracking you.
- It meets the government and industry standards.
- It is a complete privacy cleaner software where it cleans all your privacy from head to toe.
Based on the pros and cons analyzed by me, I can see that the software is not really bad at all. In fact if you look just into the functionality of the software, it meets the requirement of a privacy cleaner software. On top of that, it meets the industry standards which makes you feel more comfortable using the software without having any doubt on the efficiency. I am only concerned by the price and if it is lowered to probably $25-$30, a price of a standard registry cleaner I will not have any doubt purchasing the software. Lastly, this software is best to be used by someone who wants to do some private stuff on your computer and does not want to be tracked even after deleting those files and empty-ing the recycle bin.
