Eraser

Our Rating 10 /10
License Freeware
Windows          XP/Vista/7

 

Eraser is an advanced security tool, which allows you to completely remove sensitive data (erase files and folders) from your hard drive by overwriting it several times with carefully selected patterns. Works with Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 2003 Server and DOS. Most people have some data that they would rather not share with others – passwords, personal information, classified documents from work, financial records, self-written poems, the list continues. Perhaps you have saved some of this information on your computer where it is conveniently at your reach, but when the time comes to remove the data from your hard disk, things get a bit more complicated and maintaining your privacy is not as simple as it may have seemed at first.

Your first thought may be that when you ‘delete’ the file, the data is gone. Not quite, when you delete a file, the operating system does not really remove the file from the disk; it only removes the reference of the file from the file system table. The file remains on the disk until another file is created over it, and even after that, it might be possible to recover data by studying the magnetic fields on the disk platter surface.Before the file is overwritten, anyone can easily retrieve it with a disk maintenance or an undelete utility.There are several problems in secure file removal, mostly caused by the use of write cache, construction of the hard disk and the use of data encoding. These problems have been taken into consideration when Eraser was designed, and because of this intuitive design and a simple user interface, you can safely and easily erase private data from your hard drive.

Features:

  • It works with Windows XP (with Service Pack 3), Windows Server 2003 (with Service Pack 2), Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000 can still be used with version 5.7!
  • It works with any drive that works with Windows
  • Secure drive erasure methods are supported out of the box
  • Erases files, folders and their previously deleted counterparts
  • Works with an extremely customisable Scheduler

Smart Close

Our Rating 7 /10
License Freeware
Windows          XP/Vista/7

 

Many tasks that can be performed on PC’s these days require you to close all currently running programs. For example, almost every installer asks you to close all other applications to minimize conflicts and to avoid replacing in-use files. Other high-end tasks, such as burning CDs and defragmenting or scanning hard drives can slow down or even fail when other processes ‘kick in’, like background programs, the screen saver or a scheduled task.

Of course, you could manually close each program one by one, disable the screen saver…, but that is where Smart Close comes in. Smart Close will automatically close all running programs, disable the screen saver and halt all other processes that can interrupt without asking.

But what when the task is finished and you want to restore everything that was disabled by Smart Close? Restart the computer? No, because before Smart Close closes or disables anything, it will save the current state of the system (running programs, screen saver…) to a ‘system snapshot’, that can be opened and restored again later.

Features:

  • Two wizards: the Close Programs wizard, for closing all the programs, and the Restore wizard, to restore a system snapshot. Both provide an intuitive and clear interface, and assist you step by step.
  • Thanks to its Smart Close-technology, most programs can be properly closed, so that the program can still save its settings and return memory and resources to the system.
  • In the rare cases that a program can’t be properly closed, Smart Close can use SmartKill to kill the program. Still, all the memory and resources used by the program will be freed.
  • If you don’t want a program to be closed or killed by Smart Close, you can add it to a list of ‘Protected Programs’.
  • Besides closing programs, Smart Close also closes Explorer and Internet Explorer windows and saves their current location, so they can be restored properly later.
  • Disables and restores the screen saver.
  • On modern Windows versions, Smart Close stops and restarts Windows services that can interrupt other processes, such as the Task Scheduler. On Windows 9x/Millennium, the Task Scheduler can also be disabled and re-enabled.
  • And finally, you get all of these features for free. SmartClose is 100% freeware without any nag screens, trial periods, ads, spyware etc.
