Windows 7: secure Internet history/temp file etc cleaner?

secure Internet history/temp file etc cleaner?

Hello!

Can anyone suggest a 7 Ultimate x64 ap (free, preferable of course) that will perform scheduled history and temp file secure deletion (like 7 pass NSA), and has an option for contextual menu right-click secure delete on demand? Something along the lines of CCleaner, but that allows for scheduled scans, and unlike CCleaner which can only be added to the contextual menus when an item is in trash can, I'd like to be able to securely delete the file/data without moving it to the trash first.

Thanks!

Try finding an option in the browser you use to clear the history on close. As for secure, I'd recommend using a freeware cleaner that wipes free hard disk space, like Glary Utilities. That should do it.

I do have the browser set to clear history and such on close, I'll take a peek at glary, thanks for that tip, and yes, CCleaner is a great ap, it just doesn't run at scheduled times, which is what I'm looking for at the moment.

Thanks again.

You should be able to schedule CCleaner if you want - look at the program to see if it can run from a command line, then open task scheduler and select "Create a New Basic Task", that should do it.
