Erase Your Internet Tracks
THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION regarding the websites you visit, your chat
conversations, and all of your Internet and other PC files.
Are you aware that your computer is also a recording device? Almost
every action you make is recorded and can be easily retrieved by anyone,
not just by a computer geek but by an average computer user such as
your spouse, boss, friend, or anyone who has access to the PC you use.
For example, web browsers such as Internet Explorer and Firefox can
save every image and every website you open. Windows might save every
login name and password you type. Media players often keep records of
every movie and video clip you watch.
Without Evidence Nuker your computer is as private as a diary left on
a restaurant table for anyone to read, and thousands of people have
been fired, divorced and even sent to prison over what was found on
their PC! Do you want your loved ones, employers, or law enforcement
agencies to know everything you do Online?
For no cost at all you can download Evidence Nuker today and run a FREE
scan that will show you a listing of deleted files, emails, chat transcripts,
audio and video files, temporary internet files, image files (all formats),
search histories, clipboard data, passwords, internet history, stored
cookies and so much more! After you see everything that has been easily
recovered you can use Evidence Nuker to permanently delete everything
you want erased!
Don't lose your job, get divorced, become embarrassed,
or be sent to prison because of what you do on your home or office computer!
Protect your Identity
There are tools that can retrieve deleted files
even if a new file has been written where the old one used to be.
Not even formatting your hard drive is a guarantee of privacy! You should
never give away an old computer before permanently deleting all of the
personal information you have left on it.
Evidence Nuker gives you a choice of several deletion methods including
the one approved by the Department of Defense (DOD 5220.22-M standard)
and the one scientifically proven to be sufficient (Guttman).
Protect your Investment
Nuker can even speed up your PC!
Your computer is a valuable investment. Even if you have only used it
for a few days chances are it already has hundreds of unnecessary files
and registry items saved in various locations. Those files take up valuable
space on your hard drive. Even worse - most of the files are loaded
in your computer's memory as soon as you start the computer, this can
slow down your computer and even render some of its functions unusable.
We offer you a challenge - if you run Evidence Nuker's FREE scan and
it detects less than 100 files or less than 10,000 Kilobytes we will
give you our state of the line popup blocking software free of charge!
Thank you for choosing EvidenceNuker.
This product will detect and remove details of your computer activity that
can be used to view websites you have visited, documents you have opened,
videos you have watched, files you have deleted, and much more. EvidenceNuker
will scan your computer and allow you to see exactly what activity has been
stored on your hard drive and then provides you with the ability to securely
delete these traces.
Note: An unregistered version of EvidenceNuker will only
detect the traces of activity but will not remove them. For more information
about registering your copy of EvidenceNuker please refer to the Registration

pane of the display that you wish to exclude.

Understanding the Deletion Summary
The deletion summary may include the following text.
"Due to the operating system limitations some items will be completely
deleted on the next reboot." This refers to traces that your Operating
System caches in memory and cannot be fully deleted until the Operating System
is restarted. This includes Run History and other items.
"Some items could not be removed. Please start your computer in Safe Mode
and try again." This refers to items that are currently in use or
otherwise locked and not physically able to be deleted. The most common reason
for this message is temporary files that the Operating System or other software
creates and maintains. You can see the files that were not removable by performing
another scan. You can restart your computer in Safe Mode by pressing F8 or
CTRL just before any Windows screens are displayed during a reboot.
The Exclude List provides you with the ability to control which items will
not be removed from your computer. Items you may want to exclude are cookies
for websites you visit regularly such as online forums that rely on cookies
to retain your forum preferences.
Options provide controls over the scan schedule, shredder level, update, and
other common functions.

if Internet Explorer is running, and warns if it is. Leaving Internet Explorer
running during a scan can prevent accurate scan and removal operations.
- Clear pagefile at shutdown – Causes your pagefile (swapfile) to
be deleted when Windows shuts down. This is on by default. The pagefile
often includes copy of applications and data stored in memory.
