    • BleachBit is open source and does a thorough job of deleting various files that could reveal what you've been up to, from cookies to temporary files and other junk.

    • Coming from Linux, seems to clean a lot of things in Windows. Don't check all the function, read the hints for each one ! I never had trouble with this soft at the time. adresweb2bJun 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It does not clean Opera history and probably same is with Chrome. i did not check chrome. Guest • Aug 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • Great that it's open source, however it tends to be relatively slow at actually deleting some types of data. It does warn you, but it should be performing much quicker on an i7 6700k OC'd, with an M.2 drive. Guest • Oct 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • BleachBit only cleans the profile of the person logged in. It does not clean multiple users. Guest • Jan 2017 • 2 agrees and 5 disagrees Disagree   Agree
