        Want to be in control of some privacy as well as clean your system?
        This little freemium gem is available either as an installer or portable*

        PrivaZer v4.0.18
        Changelog: https://privazer.com/en/changelog.php

        v4.0.18 (31st January 2021)
        + Improved scan : Shellbags
        + Improved UI
        + Improved support NL (Dutsch)
        + Improved support PL (Polish)

        Compatible with the following:
        XP, Vista, Win7, Win8/8.1, W10 x86/x64
        HDD and optimized for SSD use.

        Download link: https://privazer.com/en/download.php
        nice to see there are checksums available (albeit MD5 cypher..still)

        Below is some of the purging/cleaning settings within the utility:
        Pre-analysis/ Traces in MFT/ Traces in free space/ Traces in USN Journal/
        Traces in $LogFile/ Internet browsing/ Cookies/ Index.dat & WebCache/ Windows history/ Registry*/ Indexing and much more…

        Auto SSD Trim option once clean up is completed, for a more responsive system.

        Note: * I personnaly don’t use the registry cleaner and prefer the ‘portable’ version YMMV
        I’ve been using this on devices since v2.1x or thereabouts without issue.

        Surprised this hasn’t had a recommendation in the Askwoody Tools section!

        HDD and optimized for SSD use

        How is this possible. An SSD is correctly managed by Windows so any claim to optimize seems like marketing fluff to me.

          From my own observations, when running Privazer, resource monitor displays the use of an internal privazer powershell command at the start of SSD trim that seems to utilize the MSFT Windows trim after cleaning. I doubt XP will have the same function, as this OS wasn’t equipped with windows trim.

            Trim is a standard SSD function that is called after re-writing / deleting files. Calling it independently is of no value, except maybe if you want to ensure you have removed a file immediately.

            cheers, Paul

        Many thanks, @Microfix. Apparently Privazer’s auto-email system re: updates has stopped working for me… so I wasn’t aware it had been updated.

        (PS… Much like AskWoody’s ‘Notify me of follow-up replies via email’ checkbox at the end of posts which I keep ticking, all to no avail. 🙁 )

          Re: PS — I have the opposite problem. I checked the box and get the emails, but when my interest flags I can’t figure out how to stop them.

          The emails say Return to the page to stop getting them but there’s no Unsubscribe button or link, and emptying the box and reloading just brings the page and the filled box back.

          Any suggestions, anyone?

            The un/subscribe link it at the very top right of the thread, near the title.

            cheers, Paul
