The Microsoft & WUGNET Shareware Pick of the Week for Windows
Each week Microsoft(R) and WUGNET(R) feature a Windows(R) shareware application demonstrating the very highest programming standards possible. Each new application selected for this award is exhaustively reviewed and less than five percent make the cut. It is our intent to showcase only the very "best-of-the-best" applications. New applications must work with Windows Vista and Windows 7, but many of our past selections also work with prior versions of Windows.

Award-winning Window Washer keeps getting better at cleaning away evidence of PC use and improving your system performance! Window Washer now features an entirely new interface and cleans more areas of your PC than ever before! Window Washer scrubs hundreds of programs, including Mozilla and Firefox and the latest versions of the most popular Internet browsers such as Internet Explorer, AOL and Netscape. Window Washer includes bleach technology as an added security measure. Bleach completely overwrites files, making recovery impossible.

This enhanced version also cleans up hard disk free space to remove evidence of your deleted files. Maintain your preferred Internet settings and log-ins by saving your valuable cookies, then using Window Washer to delete cookies you don't want. With the Window Washer System Eraser option, you can safely and effectively erase the contents of your hard drive so that you can donate or sell your computer with the knowledge that your private data is protected. Built-in safety features prevent you from accidentally removing important files located in special folders (including system folders, My Documents, My Photos).

  • Convenient and Easy-to-use: One mouse click starts the "Wash Now" feature.
  • Folder and File Shredder: Safe and reliable folder shredding lets you shred the entire folder or a single file by using the Windows right-click menu option. Shredding permanently overwrites the files so they cannot be recovered.

  • Customer Wash Items: Choose which of your personal files, folders or registry entries to clean.
