Windows 7: BleachBit

21 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

BleachBit quickly frees disk space and tirelessly guards your privacy. Free cache, delete cookies, clear Internet history, shred temporary files, delete logs, and discard junk you didn't know was there. Designed for Linux and Windows systems, it wipes clean 90 applications including Firefox, Internet Explorer, Adobe Flash, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari,and more. Beyond simply deleting files, BleachBit includes advanced features such as shredding files to prevent recovery, wiping free disk space to hide traces of files deleted by other applications, and vacuuming Firefox to make it faster. Better than free, BleachBit is open source.

BleachBit - Clean Disk Space, Maintain Privacy

I have used this over ccleaner as it removes and finds alot more junk that it does...Way better program for deep cleaning...

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (64-bit)

Seems to me as an open source CCleaner, and i don't know, i've downloaded it, ran it but i didn't want to "clean" or execute the cleaner..

Wouldn't like to harm my system. i trust CCleaner :)

Some of the options in the program gives you a warning and i didn't like some of the warnings (Experimental, Extremely Slow) hmmm..

Thanks for the link. but i think i'll pass, if some other members test it, please post your results here.

Thats cool but every cleaner should always give you warnings and experimental as always I have ran it with no problems on windows 7 x64 if doubt create a system restore backup before using and thanks punkster for the reply...

Edit: Unselect the wipe free space option or it will take a long time to complete the clean just like ccleaner...

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Bleachbit is basically the equivalent of CCleaner for Linux. More popular for use on Linux OS'es. I've used it in Ubuntu, seems to be OK on there. Have not used it in Windows though. Would probably be OK for it, but I just use CCleaner and Glary Utilities for Windows.
