It is possible to derive improvement in system speed by using drive cleanup software
to clean your PC system. Most computers can have their performance appreciably improved
when their hard drives contain a relatively small number of files to be handled,
stored and kept on the machine. And any and all hard disk space freed after taking
the time to do a clean-up will improve system speed simply by reducing file lookup
times. And when doing a defrag the outcome is improved when there is lots of free
space. And with your private files cleared out the risk is reduced that they are
taken and abused by persons that do not strictly require access to your files.
Many software products exist that clean up pornography. A popular example of target material is The Simpsons porn,
and only a few programs are able to detect and clean the so-called 'Simpsons porn' material. However there are more
things that these utilities are able to do, some have other functions, ie. they can
delete private data, perform automated porn removal, detect pirated software, and
analyzed used and free space.
Hard disk analysis and cleaning tools can be easily classified. Firstly there are
cleanup software products like Microsoft's Disk Cleanup utility, that are used to
get rid of redundant files and recover room on the disk. Also you can find other
software products that clean out URL history and delete traces of things you have
typed while searching from IE and Firefox, and some other browsers, software such
as Privacy Eraser. Now there is also porn detection software which detects the presence
of pornography and inappropriate material and assists the user in deletion of these
items. And a final category of cleanup utilities is the 'disk washer' style product,
which rubs out existing files and data remaining on the hard drive's slack space,
so that nobody else can find it.
