    I looked it over and kept it.;)
    It a surprise how many tools they stuffed in the free version!
    And they seem to work well.

    :thumbd: FYI: WinUtilities Disk Defrag uses JkDefrag'Source Code. No mention is made of that in their documentation by WinUtilities. It's a fencing posture and an abusive idiosyncrasy indeed...

    :thumbd: BTW, Abexo Disk Defragmenter (payware...) does the same...

    But they can't do that anymore with the freeware MyDefrag (that isn't open source like the previous JkDefrag...). :D

    Saw the link in another thread, looks like a good program and this has even more tools than Glary Utilities or just as many. I am fixing to install it now.

    No.
    Neither the free or Pro version clean Google Chrome.

    according to the screen shots, it does clean chrome's history. (pro version at least)

    Do you know where that would be listed?
    I have the Pro version 9.38 and Chrome is not listed as a browser in the Privacy Eraser.
    Might it be a plugin?
    Or does it recognize that Chrome is installed?

    *edited for a second thought.

    Go to http://www.ylcomputing.com/content/view/16/35/ and click the History Cleaner Screenshot link. It shows Chrome listed.

    Thanks.
    I see what you're talking about.
    Apparently WinUtilities recognizes that Chrome is installed. That explains why it doesn't list it for me.
