Perhaps it's possible to introduce a ""Wipe Pagefile.sys"" option in CC ?? I mean that it shouldn't kill this file but merely clean its contents.


Sources on the internet suggest that this requires a (small) change in the Windows registry because it only can be done right before one shuts down one's computer ??? And I certainly DO NOT want to mess with the Windows registry.

There's already a ClearPageFileAtShutdown value in HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management .

However, it is useless for 99.9% of people. I don't think anyone will try to search into the page file to look for valuable information. And if someone does, it'll be a virus - so it will harm your computer anyway.
