I generally recommend being paranoid when it comes to maintaining PC data privacy, and Tenebrils GhostSurf 2005 Platinum Edition made it easy for me to look over my shoulder all I wanted during a recent test at eWEEK Labs.
GhostSurf 2005 Platinum Edition started shipping this month and costs a competitive $49.95. It includes a spyware remover, a Web surfing anonymizer, an advertisement blocker, storage encryption and utilities that wiped out records of sites I visited on the Web as well as files that I wanted removed from my laptop hard drive.
I like the fact that all the utilities are integrated into a single, easy-to-use interface. With no muss or fuss, I was able to set up parameters that protected my identity while surfing by blocking cookies, hiding my IP address and encrypting data. This protection comes at the expense of performance, but while using GhostSurf 2005 Platinum Edition, I wasnt unduly impeded.
GhostSurf 2005 Platinum Editions nifty reports show how many cookies and ads were blocked, and the spyware programs found and removed.
