    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.

    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.
