Features of Mil Shield 5.0See more on developers site.
NEW! Selective cleaning. Many of privacy threats come from Internet Explorer features that are good and convenient: Internet cache speeds up the browsing, cookies protect you from entering your user information over and over again, etc. Mil Shield 5.0 selectively preserves temporary Internet files, history and/or cookies for chosen by you safe Internet sites.
Cleaning of Firefox tracks.Mil Shield 5.0 cleans all kinds of Firefox tracks: cache, cookies, history, forms history, Search Bar history, downloads history, last download folder and saved passwords. It also resets start and search pages of Firefox. Note that all Firefox files are shredded before cleaning in order to make them irrecoverable.
Automatic cleaning. You can schedule background cleaning at each startup or shutdown, or when the Internet Explorer is closed. While running in background Mil Shield 5.0 is completely invisible.
NEW! Built-in scheduler. You can schedule Mil Shield 5.0 to clean at specific time intervals or once a day at specific time of day.
Advanced cleanup scheduling. For more advanced users Mil Shield 5.0 offers additional way to automate making of silent cleanups. You can use the command-line utility ShieldAgent.exe to schedule silent cleanups at arbitrary times using Windows Task Scheduler, other scheduling program or batch script. This is very useful when automatic backups are made; when many computers need to be cleaned from user tracks (for example in computer classrooms) or when there is a need to clean the user tracks on remote computer.
Support for user accounts. On multi-user systems most of the tracks are user-specific. With Mil Shield 5.0 you can choose the user accounts that will be cleaned. This feature works both with user profiles in Windows 95/98/ME and with user accounts in Windows NT/2000/XP.
Cleans and shreds Index.dat files. Index.dat files are cache files used by Internet Explorer. When you visit a Web page, Internet Explorer saves the address of the page, time of visiting and even HTTP request for this page in few different Index.dat files. The cookie names and some other information is also stored in the Index.dat files. Later this information is not deleted even if you delete History and temporary Internet files folders content. Everyone can see the contents of these files with a binary editor program, which exposes all tracks of your browsing.
These files can not be found with regular file search and even if you find them, you can not delete them because they are used by Windows all the time. Mil Shield deletes the contents of these files with low-level file operations to be sure that there are no traces left.
Boss key combination. Every now and then there are situations where you need to clean the tracks very fast. For example it may be your boss coming in while you are losing your time browsing the Internet. For such cases there is so called stealth key combination in Mil Shield 5.0. All you need to do is to press certain keys together and all open Internet Explorer windows are closed and an invisible background cleanup is started.
NEW! In addition to all open Internet Explorer windows, Mil Shield will close some other "embarrassing" programs when stealth key is pressed. This option is useful when you are afraid that your boss or someone else can come in and look at your display while you are doing something. In such case you can hit the stealth key combination and all embarrassing programs will be immediately closed. Here is the list of default applications that are closed when boss key is pressed:
Windows Media Player. Both standard Media Player and classic Media Player (mplayer2.exe) are closed. Additionally, the Media Player update dialog is closed if it is shown.
QuickTime Player and iTunes.
Irfan Viewer. This application is included because it is widely used to view pictures and videoclips.
ACDSee. This application is included because it is widely used to view pictures.
Standard Windows Games. All standard Windows games that are shipped with Windows XP are closed: FreeCell, Hearts, Internet Backgammon, Internet Checkers, Internet Hearts, Internet Reversi, Internet Spades, Minesweeper, Pinball, Solitaire, Spider Solitaire.
MSN Messenger and Windows Messenger.
Yahoo Messenger (Yahoo Pager).
AIM (AOL Instant Messenger).
ICQ. Both ICQ Lite and ICQ Pro are closed.
Cleans AutoComplete forms and passwords. The AutoComplete feature of the Internet Explorer saves previous entries you've made for Web forms (including your name, e-mail, SSN, credit card information) and passwords. Then, when you type information in one of these fields, AutoComplete suggests possible matches. Obviously this is a major privacy threat. Mil Shield reliably cleans all AutoComplete records.
Restores home page of the Internet Explorer if it has been hijacked. Many Web sites change (also known as hijacking) your home page to their pages (usually full of ads and with many annoying pop-up windows). Mil Shield allows you to set a preferred home page that will be restored each time when a cleaning is performed.
