Cover Your Tracks

SAN FRANCISCO (08/28/2000) - If you feel that it's nobody's business where you go on the Internet, Ontrack Data International Inc.'s Internet Cleanup offers to cover your tracks. The $25 utility, which runs on any version of Windows and supports all the major Web browsers, lets you wipe out cache files, history files, cookies, ActiveX controls, and plug-ins. You can choose manual or automatic cleansing, specify cookies you want to keep, and use a secure erase to overwrite data. Unfortunately, Internet Cleanup doesn't erase the Windows recent-document list, so anyone can see what files you opened while you were browsing. In addition, I found that when I used it with "smart" Recycle Bin utilities (such as as the one in Norton Utilities), files deleted by Internet Cleanup were still available for review. However, that didn't happen with Windows' standard Recycle Bin. Ontrack; 800/872-259; www.ontrack.com
