Independent Review of 'Evidence Eliminator' -
Software to Keep Your Tracks Clean
Privacy on the Internet can all but
disappear when surfing the web, if you are not careful. There
is much information that accumulates on your computer
including your surfing habits, what web sites you have
visited, how often you visit those sites, what files you have
downloaded, and what applications you have used.
'Evidence Eliminator' from UK based
Robin Hood Software is without a doubt the most complete
privacy protection software available if you're concerned about anyone snooping around
your computer's hard disk. Sure there are cheaper
products available, but when you may be at risk of being
illegally imprisoned, surely it's worth investing in the best?
Ease of Use: 9/10. Once
Evidence Eliminator's many configurations are set, files can
easily be permanently deleted with a single click and full
deletions can be set to run regularly.
Ease of Installation and Setup: 6/10.
Download and installation are a breeze. However,
Evidence Eliminator is not as easy to configure as other
competitors products. This to me is one of it's main
strengths: because there are so many configurations you
control every aspect of what Evidence Eliminator does and
doesn't do. If you are a non-techie, make sure you
understand the options you are setting before you perform any
of the wash/cleaning functions. Definitely read the help
document to understand all of the terminology. The
documentation is outstanding. You will learn about the
internal workings of your computer and what information is
stored on your computer after surfing the Internet or running
Effectiveness: 10/10. One word
of caution, if you are not careful, you could accidentally
delete all of the folders you have created in Outlook Express.
By default (which I don't like) it will delete all
non-standard folders in Outlook Express. There is a nice
safety check for beginners using the Evidence Eliminator
application that allows you to be notified before a large
number of files are deleted. This prevents you from
accidentally deleting entire folders or even your entire
hard-drive. Evidence Eliminator is the only product that
claims to have magnetic resonance to evade the detection of
files from an electron microscope, which are used by law
enforcement agencies when conducting thorough investigations.
Feature Set: 10/10. Evidence
Eliminator has by far the largest variety of options and
features of all the products compared.
Clear, concise and detailed. Make sure you read it
carefully before running the software for the first time,
otherwise you may delete files you didn't mean to!
Support: 9/10. Prompt,
efficient support offered by submitting a question directly
from their site.
Value for Money: 8/10. The
software is undeniably expensive at $150, putting it out of the
reach of most people who are not serious about their online
privacy. However, it's well worth the investment,
considering the extent of deletion and protection offered.
Analysis: If you understand
the times we're living in and how easy it is for 'law
enforcement' agencies to find incriminating evidence on your
computer, and if you're serious
about protecting yourself and keeping out of harms way, this is a must-have
program, which has the added benefit of dramatically speeding
up your computer after a thorough cleaning.
I highly recommend purchasing
Evidence Eliminator. I've
used this fantastic software to make sure the politically
incorrect material I research for this site will never land me
in hot water. Ideal for use with
