PurgeIE - Purge Cache, Cookies and Tracks for Internet Explorer

Every time you surf the Web your Internet browser stores information about your system and the sites you visit--perhaps including files you've accessed, images you've viewed and products you've purchased.  Not only can your "tracks" show others where you've been and what you've been doing, but these data files also take up space on your hard drive and can slow the overall performance of your computer.  Use this program to rid your system of its Web Cache, History and unprotected Cookies at the press of a button.  PurgeIE deletes data from within the Internet Explorer indexing system.

Requirements: XP, VISTA, Win-7 or Win-8 and IE-5.0 through IE-10
Cost:  Free to try for 15 non-contiguous days, $19.95 to keep   (try before you buy)

DelinvFile - Delete Invalid Files and Folders

DelinvFile is a Utility that you can use to delete data files that you have not been able to delete using the normal Windows Delete function.  You could use the phrase 'delete undeletable files' to describe the program.

Most file delete problems can be overcome by using a DOS or Command window to:

  1.  Execute a Delete command referencing the Short FileName or

  2.  Execute a Delete command for the UNC form of the FileName.

However, it is quite difficult to manually enter a lengthy filename without error.  Most of the relatively new computer users are not comfortable using DOS commands.  DelinvFile provides a user-friendly interface for deleting such files. 

The commercial version of DelinvFile made available additional functions and now requires licensing (registration).

Requirements: XP, VISTA, Win-7 or Win-8
Cost:  Diagnostic Functions - Free.   Delete and Rename Functions  $26.95
