    I suppose this could be a privacy issue...
                  Anyone know of any proggies that will clean, erase, delete..etc.  log files only ?  By that I mean,  not a huge program that cleans all trash, just a small program that targets log files only !!
                   Thanks...bill   ;)

    Billmac, I have a subdirectory (sorry, in Gates' Speak, "Folder") on my desktop called "Setups".  In there, I place copies of all my installed OEM software, with text files of their keys, where appropriate).  Periodically I copy "Setups" to CD.  Periodically, I reformat and security wipe my entire hard disk, install the latest and bloatest offering from MurkySoft, and reinstall the software I bought or licensed from my CD.

    It's cautious but effective.  Dead tracks tell no tales.

                    Very clever indeed !! I do back up all my software setup files on CD's, but formatting my HD on a regular basis....I hate doing that at the best of times.
    SpyBotSD doesn't clean all the log files...but I love the program  anyway !!
    I'll try the XCleaner mentioned by Spy1.
                thanks.....bill      ;)

    SBSD is getting better by the day. Secure shreading is a newer addition.
