IEClean32 Makes Internet Explorer "Safer To Use"

Privacy Software Corporation announced the latest release of IEClean, saying that it makes Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser "safer to use."

IEClean32 v4.01 allows people to control personal privacy on the Internet and to recover much of the hard disk space conventionally taken up by the cache.

"IEClean32 allows users to selectively remove a number of items on their machines which track their movements on the Internet. It permits selective editing of 'cookies' and the ability to decide which they wish to retain while removing the rest," said the vendor in a statement.

In addition, IEClean32 gives users control over caches, plus the ability to cleanup after using email or visiting usenet newsgroups, cleaning the user history databases and the "visited sites" display.

It also helps users look after easily overlooked records such as temporary files, recently viewed documents and other data collected by the browser of their activities. Other issues addressed by the product are "hit logging," "Active Channels," and the risk of forged ActiveX controls--about which there are further details on the vendor's site.

IEClean works with Internet Explorer 4.0 and earlier versions of IE for Windows 95 and NT.
