MRU-Blaster 1.5 (Freeware Windows Application)
MRU-Blaster is a program made to do one large task – detect and clean MRU (most recently used) lists on your computer.
These MRU lists contain information such as the names and/or locations of the last files you have accessed. They are located ALL OVER your registry, and for almost ANY file type. By looking at these MRU lists, someone could determine what files you opened/saved/looked at, what their file names were, and much more! (And, in many cases, the lists are displayed in drop-down menus automatically.)
With additional plug-ins that allow you to clean out your Temporary Internet Files and Cookies, MRU-Blaster enhances the protection of your privacy!
MRU-Blaster is a privacy cleaning tool that scans your computer for MRU (most recently used) entries, cookies and Internet cache files and offers to remove them. MRU entries are left by almost any software, they are used to allow you to access recently used files, documents etc. While they are convenient for most users, they can also reveal details of what you’ve been doing, what documents you have worked on etc. For those that would rather not keep this information accessible, MRU-Blaster will do the job. It can detect more than 30,000 MRU items and quickly scans your system, then presents you with a list. Additional features include cookie cleaning (with exclude option), secure file deletion, index.dat file deletion and more..
MRU-Blaster is freeware/donationware.
