PC Pitstop Erase is both a free privacy scan and paid tracks cleaner. Erase runs in two separate phases, first scanning your computer for personal tracks you've left behind, then selectively erasing this information.

Everything you do on your computer is being recorded by Windows in order to create a more personalized experience. However, this same history log can be easily accessed by unscrupulous third parties to track and learn your computing habits. Important information includes which websites you frequent, which documents you've been using, and who you've been instant messaging. Erase allows users to quickly and easily detect and select which of this information they would like to remove.
The first step of Erase only scans your computer and does not make any changes. In the second step, users can select items they would like to remove and perform the deletion. If users should select the box Overwrite files to prevent recovery by undeleted utilities, the erased data will not be recoverable.
The Grey List makes it easier to remove unnecessary or undesirable cookies without risking deleting something important. Some of the cookies on the Grey List include ad tracking cookies and porn sites. If you are unsure of which cookies you want to keep or delete, we have created the Grey List to make your decision easier.
The White List allows you to type in domains from which you would like to accept cookies. This feature allows you to store your login information on the websites you select. For example, PC Pitstop cookies help our full test remember who you are so you do not have to retype your login information
