If you want a quick way to wipe out all the different files that allow marketers to track you online then get yourself a copy of CCleaner 3.24.1850. This free software will work on any Windows system, from XP to 8, and it gives you a way to quickly clean out all of the tracking cookies, temporary files and much more.
The installation process is really quick and the user interface is pretty nicely put together. I've been using this software for years, as a way to quickly wipe out only the cookies I want deleted. You see, you can go into the options and then click cookies and tell it which cookies you want it to keep. Just click the "Analyze" button first and it will populate a list of all the cookies on your system. Why would you want to keep some of the tracking cookies? Because there are always sites that you often go to, and sometimes have your login information saved for, so you're going to want to skip over those cookies so that you don't have to go back through and enter in all your login information again. I'm sure you've come across sites that don't let you log in unless you have cookies enabled, right? Well, that's how some sites remember who you are.
But this software will clean out the different browsers you have on your computer. And by clean out I mean it will delete temporary internet files, your history, cookies, recently typed URLs, index.dat files, last download locations, autocomplete form history and saved passwords. And if that's not enough it can also clean out your windows explorer, your system and there are even some advanced options. And the good part is that you can pick which things you want it to clean out, so that it doesn't just do a whole overhaul of your system.
So, if you often find that you want to delete your cookies and hate how it wipes everything out at once, or you want to clear out your system in other ways then check out this software! It's free, very customizable and easy to use.
