Quite a few on here I know use this software so will be interested in this thread

Looking at the picture of the boy and realising his age (you'll see what I mean) may make some question as to whether they want to keep using it.

Thank you for the warning.

 

Eraser version 5.84 32 bit has worked here (Win XP home) w/ no problems for quite a while. This version still available at: http://www.onlyfreewares.com/Utilities/Enc...rity/Eraser.php

 

I just downloaded it and compared the exe file with the one I am using and it seems exactly the same.

The CCleaner SLIM version is always released a bit after any new version; when it is it will be HERE :-)

Pssssst: ... It isn't really a cloud. Its a bunch of big, giant servers.

I stayed at version 5.7 after 5.8 trashed my OS and they failed to do any kind of investigation when I posted about it on their forum.

 

Incidentally that message has also been posted, and replied to, on the Eraser forum itself:

You really shouldn't jeopardize your system integrity with a software that's just been taken over by an unknown entity, especially after reading some of his replies in that other forum I would avoid it. Maybe later on his coding may perhaps become trusted, etc. There's other freeware floating about that can wipe the freespace of HDD's.

Or just stick to an older version. I've stuck with version 5.7 after briefly trying 5.8 a few months after it came out and finding it buggy and any software that trashes my OS doesn't get a second chance.

Have used Eraser for a number of years and for the most part without problems.  My last clean however indicated that Systems Restore or Volume Shadow "may have" not allowed Eraser to complete the job.  Can't find anywhere on the Eraser website where I can get an answer to this and if in fact Systems Restore should be turned off prior to using Eraser. Any ideas??
