This product wasn't easy to use.

Wintracks had no additional plugins, far lower than most of the products reviewed. A plugin is a small piece of interface software that allows your computer to erase the history of the last used files within certain desktop applications like image viewers, graphical editors, chat, email, readers, etc.

Wintrack's Internet browser cleaning features included address bar, cache (Temporary Internet Files), cookies, and history of visited URLs. Windows cleaning functions included clipboard data, find/search history, index.dat, Media Player history, MS Office history, recently opened documents, recycle bin, run history, scan disk temporary files, and user selected files/directories. Wintracks had a scheduling of cleaning options available and password protection. The product supports Internet Explorer/MSN and Netscape Navigator.

Overall, Wintracks is a fair product, but is lacking in technical support, access to help and documentation, and in several feature areas.
