Square Privacy Cleaner from NoVirusThanks helps hide your tracks

NoVirusThanks has provided a trusted tool for remotely scanning files before we download them for quite some time. Now they've introduced a new, free app to help keep your desktop activities private.

Square Privacy Cleaner (SPC) is like a lot of other track-hiding apps, offering to remove things like cookies, browsing history, MRU items, and clipboard contents. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and Opera are supported, as are a number of other apps -- including Adobe Reader, Windows Media Player, MS Office, FlashGet, 7-Zip. Temp and log file cleanup is also supported.

Hit the settings tab, and you can configure SPC to handle various file clean-up roadblocks by terminating running processes and deleting locked files on reboot. Cleaning can also be scheduled to run automatically at startup or shutdown.

Square Privacy Cleaner is a free download, and it's available as both an installer and a portable app.
