    BTW, here's the location of my Google Bar search history:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\NavClient\1.1\History

    Currently, it only does registry entries - I *may* however add those vital ones to the database (and add a checkbox to specify scanning and deleting them).

    There's always an interesting opportunity for a combination "ID-Blaster/MRU-Blaster/cache cleaning/cookie cleaning/cleaning the additional items you mentioned above" application which I could just call "Privacy Blaster". :)

    Not yet. You can be sure it'll be in the next database update. :)

    Those I know about - all the information there is stored in encrypted format, but they should be included in a database update soon also (not necessarily the next one).

    Tony,

    You probably already know this, but Spybot S&D can clean up your Google toolbar recent search list.

    Javacool,

    I´d like to see this one cleaned out as well (also on Spybot´s list) : HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\5.0\AVGeneral\cRecentFiles\c1

    Regards,

    Pieter

    I knew that indeed, Pieter. That's how I noticed... ;)


    And Javacool, I think it is vital to include MRU files as well.

    It would make MRU Blaster complete. :)

    I can't really understand how you could on one hand target for example the WordPad history, just because it's HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Wordpad\Recent File List, but on the other disregard MS Office 9.0 recent files, on the sole ground that they're not located in the Registry.

    With all due respect, I can't see the logic there.

    That item is included in the latest database update (10/12/02). :)

    Quite understandable (the original reason was because they are technically not an MRU list ;), but don't worry - they'll be added soon - the Office Recent folder(s) are so closely related to MRUs that, as you said, it doesn't make much sense NOT to add them).

    Great! :)

    It's just that it would be nice to be able to delete all recent files and MRU lists in one fell swoop.

    I must add, that I've never really used applications to do that, but I've always emptied them manually. or through running a regfile, whenever I felt like it.

    I'm not the really paranoid type... ;)

    However, now that we have this fine application, why not include these closely related items?

    One shouldn't need to install 2 or 3 application, just to clear out recent file lists, IMHO.

    Hi JC !
    Nice proggie ! Quick and simple !
    Off topic somewhat...and I mentioned it in the past....
    is it possible to create a proggie that targets "log files" for deletion/wiping ??

    That's always a future possibility, but it probably won't anytime soon (I'm still working on expanding the MRU-Blaster database). :)

    Will do - another database update should be coming soon (probably tomorrow) that'll push the count over 10,000. :D

    Hi,

    On one hand I see that that could be maybe, maybe a nice thing, but at the other hand I would suggest to be very cautious here:
    Would you really like to loose your log-files of -for example- your firewall (ZA for example), your AV, your AT, etc.......? Hm, think twice, I definitely would suggest.

    I think he was hinting more towards an application that would delete other logs (because I certainly wouldn't want to delete those either).

    IF I would make a program that would contain that functionality, you can be assured it would be separate from MRU-Blaster. :)

    Hey JC,

    I knew that you too wouldn't delete these! ;)
    Sorry for posting my warning in a bit strong words!


    Thanks a lot Javacool !!!!!

    Warm regards, Jan.

    controler,

    The actual download link is:

    www.wilders.org/HTMLobj-1452/mrublastersetup.exe

    It's hard to keep up with all new updates coming fast.

    btw: this isn't the latest version. Due to the fact our server move hasn't fully completed yet, we are at the moment unable to update the web page. Be assured it will be as soon as possible - including the latest version link.

    regards.

    MRU-Blaster error

    Hi Javacool,

    Just noticed that for some reason, I get a Run-time error 28: "Out of stack space" every single time I try to run the latest MRU-Blaster version, on Windows ME. It displays this error endlessly, clicking OK produces the same error again and again, and the only thing one can do is kill MRU-Blaster from memory. I didn't have this problem with the first version. Am I the only one who gets this error?

    Oh, and reinstalling does not help.
