Mil Shield 7.9

Mil Shield Editor's Review

Protect your on and off line privacy with this handy utility.

Your computer remembers everything you do both on and offline. Everything you do reads and writes some kind of data to and from the hard drive.  Depending on your current level of comfort, you may not want all of this information just sitting on your hard drive waiting for someone with the right tools and talent to browse through it. That's where Mil Shield comes into play. It’s the ultimate Windows privacy tool.

Mil Shield deletes web browser tracks, including tracks from Internet Explorer, including its index.dat files, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome, and Safari for Windows. Items cleaned include temporary internet files, cookies, history, search history, download history, AutoComplete (forms) data, passwords, and Flash cookies. It will be like you never opened your browser.

Mil Shield deletes Windows tracks, including recent documents history, most recently used (MRU) folders of the Windows shell, and the list of most recently opened files and folders in File Open and File Save dialog windows. It will be like you never ran the operating system.

Most importantly, Mil Shield allows you to customize your own tracks. You can specify files and information to delete each time the program cleans your computer. Custom Cleaning can delete files, folders, registry keys and their values. You can specify multiple files or values at once, using wildcards or regular expressions.

Mil Shield will also shred files. When you delete a file without shredding, its content remains on your hard drive until the space is used again. Mil Shield will wipe the free space on your hard drive, insuring the ultimate privacy protection on your computer. The free space on your hard drives is securely wiped using one of the five user selectable methods, including the 35-pass Gutmann algorithm.

Pros: Thorough and customizable privacy cleaning.

Cons: Uses a non-Windows standard interface, or skin.

Conclusion: Mil Shield is easy to configure, setup and use. It provides near complete privacy and security on home and shared work computers. While it does use a non-standard interface or skin, this shouldn't keep you from giving the application a try. Its thorough, and its file shredding capabilities are superior.
