    Well i used Cyberscrub sometime ago, it takes some time to finish its job and ask to reboot to fininsh cleaning. It will depend on your harddrive size?

    First, welcome to Wilders Security Forums.....

    I use CyberScrub, and found it to be an invaluable cleaning tool.
    As member ha14 mentioned, CyberScrub can and will take some time to complete the wiping process, and may prompt for an reboot, but is well worth the delay.
    The wiping time can be improved an little by using the Wipe Method: (Quick Wiping (One Pass/No Check))

    CyberScrub has no customer support at all. I paid for it twice and still wasn't able to use it. The software itself is good, but the company sucks. If something goes wrong, you are all alone on your own, no chance to get help.

    My impression is that CyberScrub Privacy Suite is, unfortunately, a product that has effectively been discontinued (but is still being sold). There hasn’t been an update issued for quite some time, and customer support appears to no longer exist.

    I switched to R-Wipe&Clean, and have been pleased.

    Good observation, Pleonasm! Similar case like Evidence Eliminator.

    Save your money, please. Eraser and CCleaner do everything this app does and are free. Add NirSoft's "Clean After Me" and Bleachbit (also both free) and you will meet or exceed any of these apps mentioned -- for free.

    Badcompany, last year, there was a lengthy discussion on Evidence Eliminator and if you search, you'll find many others as well.

    We don't need this thread to become another A versus B debacle, going around in circles, otherwise it will end up closed.
