Editorial review


Ashley Griggs Senior editor

WinSweeper is a simple to use program that provides you with an easy way to erase the traces of your activity on your Windows computer.

The application comes with an intuitive interface that can be managed without difficulty by any user, beginner and professional. You can easily configure the settings for the application by opting for the proper computer activity type and Internet history subcategory to be deleted.
WinSweeper instantly empties Recycle Bin, clears Open/Save history, or erases the recent activity traced by most of your applications.

An important disadvantage of using this simple application is that it freezes occasionally. The program also lacks a scan scheduler, a tool that might prove to be of good use at some point.

If I have to summarize, WinSweeper manages to wipe any trace of my activity on the computer. Still, the program comes with some relevant faults and since you have to pay to use this trace removal tool, my guess is that you should look for more advanced Windows activity erasers.


  • Intuitive interface.
  • Wipes traces from Windows applications, Internet, Microsoft Office.


  • It freezes occasionally.
  • Unable to schedule traces removal.

Publisher's description

WinSweeper permanently removes traces of your computer activities and internet history. The software is effectively organized into the four major sections that the software cleans: Windows, the internet, Microsoft Office, and Other Applications.
When you access each section you are presented with a list of all the corresponding sectors, programs, browsers and components that you can wipe clean. You can select them all, or pick and choose which areas to clean. Once you’ve designated what to include/exclude from privacy scanning, simply click the "Start Scan" button and the software goes to work. The cleaning process is relatively quick and displays progress bars for the current task and the overall process.
