PurgeIE Full Description
PurgeIE helps Internet Explorer users eliminate unwanted Internet files. This superb utility provides the tools you need to cover your surfing tracks and keep Internet-related garbage from overrunning your hard drive. PurgeIE enables you to easily remove a variety of leftover files that Internet Explorer leaves in its wake when you browse the Internet.
Despite all of the bad press that Cookies have received, there are some good Cookies that contain stored passwords and preferences for Web sites you trust. These Cookies actually make your life easier. You just tell PurgeIE which ones to 'protect' and it will delete the rest. PurgeIE incorporates a Cookie Viewer with search functions to assist you in deciding which Cookies to mark for 'protection'. This allows you to quickly determine which Cookies contain your personal information.
PurgeIE now has functions to assist in Cookie Control. Using the Protect Window, one can see the applicable Security Zone and the new IE-6 'per-site' Cookie settings. Maintenance functions are implemented so that the user can easily change these settings from the Protect Window.
Cache files, Cookies, Visited URLs, Typed URLs, History Folders, Strays, Recent Links, the IE UserData folder, Recycle Bin and the Windows Temp Folder are the current categories you can choose to eliminate. For users of IE-5 and IE-6, features include clearing Previous Searches and AutoComplete Forms. You can also specify time frames to retain your more recent cache files.
PurgeIE has become quite popular among the Cache and Cookie utilities as it provides the user with several options and includes a preview function to you to evaluate the effect of each of the Purge options before their execution. PurgeIE manages its cleanup functions without requiring you to restart your system. Supports IE-4 thru IE-6.
A recent upgrade implements an option for purging IE's Userdata folder - SuperCookies. The 15 trial days need not be contiguous.
