Anyone know of any Free software as good as Evidence Eliminator?
As good as! Evidence Elimator is made by spammers, bullies and trolls. The product is very poor IMO.
For disk wiping - BC Wipe
Cleaning MRUs - MRU Blaster
Removing temp files - JV16
Cleaning Registry - JV16
Everything else - do it manually.
EE is awful, it is the most hated tool by security professionals because its a sub standard product made by a company that thinks spam is a genuine form of advertising.
Thanks Enyo. I must have been influenced by the advertising. They claim to be the only software to do the job correctly. They say that most of the others, and they list quite a few, are no good.
They do that, I mean look at the main page of there site. Big yellow dramatic box:
No der? It would worry a end user with a porn fetish and thats there target market.
Its all smoke and mirrors and very little merit.
evidence-elimator-sucks.com seems to be gone, what a shame.
Wheres the list of software they say is no good?
Sorry Enyo, I can't find that link showing all the cleaners they claimed were no good. All the usual cleaners were mentioned. I'll keep looking for it again.
Is there a free version of BC Wipe?
I believe is none expiring shareware. May not be anymore im not too sure. Free ones:
Eraser is good so is PGPWipe also but is not stand alone or free in its current version (old versions of the PGP Suite are free). Also Analog-X SuperShredder.
Anything that does DoD standards or Gutmann is fine.
They are all listed on:
Go for something with the Popular! Mark next to it
i've just found part of that article again, although it isn't the one I saw earlier which had a lot more software listed. It stated;-
If you have bought any cheaper imitation software, be aware of Vogon Forensics statement that:
