MRU Blaster – Detect and Clean (updated)
Posted by cotojo on May 12, 2007
MRU-Blaster is a program that does one large task – detect and clean the MRU (most recently used) lists on your computer.
This program is Freeware, although donations are accepted
Download this program, I suggest that you place a New Folder on your Desktop and rename it ‘Downloads’. You can then download the various programs that I pass on to you in one central location, and ALWAYS make back up copies.
The additional plug-ins are described below and allow you to clean out your Temporary Internet Files and Cookies.
MRU-Blaster enhances the protection of your privacy!
MRU-Blaster setup: Just follow these steps:
When installed go to Settings and tick boxes
1,3,4,6,7,8,9, & 10 on the left hand side.
Tick boxes 3,5,6, 7 & 8 on right hand side,
then Save Setting.
Click on ‘Go To Plugins’ then click cookie blaster. Do not save any cookies as they are used to monitor your internet activity.
Click on ‘IE Temporary Internet File Cleaner’, tick Enable Secure Deletion of Files and click radio button ‘Specify a custom number of passes and set to 7. Then save Settings & Run Now.
Using this program frequently only takes a few seconds and removes traces of the Most Recently Used (MRU) lists on your PC.
These lists contain details of the name/locations of the files you have accessed. Traces of these are left scattered through your registry and unless removed are there for all to find.
Please Note: These files will be wiped, but will still show in your Temporary and Cookies Folders UNTIL you have rebooted.
One very important thing – do NOT save your passwords on your hard drive and do NOT tick the boxes asking to remember your login details.
Open any text document and type in the URL, Username and Password for each site that you have a password for, and save this to either a floppy disc, flash drive, or other removable media.
Do NOT save this text file on your hard drive.
I will cover another program for using secure passwords in the near future.
As always: BACK-UP your system or create a restore point first
Safe surfing everyone
