BleachBit for Windows is useful software designed to help you easily clean your computer to free up disk space and maintain privacy. Using this tool is very easy. Just read the descriptions, check the boxes you want, click preview, and click delete.
BleachBit is designed for Linux and Windows systems as well as no adware, spyware, malware, backdoors, browser toolbars, or “value-added software.” This tool has been translated into 64 languages other than American English, so for those of you who are not proficient in English, it is very beneficial to use the language of your own country.
Apart from deleting corrupted files to hide their contents and prevent data recovery, this tool is able to shred any files (such as a spreadsheet on your desktop) as well as overwriting free disk space to hide previously deleted files. It can also delete thousands of applications, including Firefox, Internet Explorer, Adobe Flash, VLC media player, RealPlayer, Skype, Google Chrome, Google Earth, Opera, Safari, and more. BleachBit includes a growing list of cleaners.
Typically each cleaner represents an application such as Firefox or Internet Explorer. Within each cleaner, BleachBit gives options covering components that can be cleaned such as cache, cookies, and log files. Each option is given a description to help you make good decisions extraordinary!
