Why do I need protection? Frequently asked questions

Growing privacy threats

More than 12 million American citizens are affected by identity fraud or other online privacy related crimes each year (according to Federal Trade Commission). Attacks are performed by keyloggers, trojans, phishing, pharming, redirectors and many other methods. The total economic costs are in the range of 57 bln. dollars with average damage per victim around 4,500 dollars.

The protection usually includes antivirus programs, anti-spyware software, firewalls and many others. The common problem with all these solutions is that they are good only when dealing with already known threats (and that is only if they are updated very often). Your computer keeps extensive information about which websites you have visited, and what documents, pictures or video files you have opened. This means that virtually anyone that can acquire even low-security level access to your computer, can steal a lot of private information.

Cleaning up the history of your activities completely and safely is impossible without specialized program because most of the tracks are not visible by any standard means and can not be removed manually. This process must be performed every time you use your computer. Mil Shield automates this process while giving you the opportunity to choose the types of tracks that you want to clean. Mil Shield can also run invisibly in the background and is able to clean the tracks whenever you want.

The program also helps to optimize Windows and the installed applications. It is well known fact that most Windows installations tend to run slower as time passes. One of the main reasons for such slowdowns are the temporary files, logs and registry keys, which are mostly useless but take valuable space and contribute to the fragmentation of your hard disk.

Mil Shield cleans the old and unused files, folders and registry keys of Windows. The program also checks for and deletes the old files and keys of hundreds other applications and makes it possible to have your computer running faster and to avoid periodic Windows reinstallations due to system slowdown and instability.

Overview of Mil Shield 8.1 features

NEW! Full support for Windows 8.1. Mil Shield works on the latest Microsoft operating system. The program also supports Windows 8, 7, Vista, and XP, and works on both 32-bit and 64-bit variants of Windows.

Screenshot of Mil Shield 8.1 cleaning settings

Browser tracks. Mil Shield deletes the tracks of all popular browsers: Internet Explorer (including all index.dat files), Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome, Safari for Windows and Avant. For each of them, all privacy-related tracks are cleaned: cache (Temporary Internet Files), cookies, history, search history, downloads history, AutoComplete (forms) data, passwords, Flash cookies and home page. Learn more 

Windows tracks. Mil Shield cleans all kinds of Windows tracks: recent documents history, most recently used (MRU) folders of the Windows shell, list of most recently opened files and folders in File Open and File Save dialog windows, and many more 

Application tracks. Mil Shield cleans the tracks of hundreds programs. The list includes many kinds of media players, office applications, download managers and many others 

Selective cleaning. Many of privacy threats come from 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 selectively preserves temporary Internet files, history and/or cookies for chosen by you safe Internet sites. Learn more 

Automatic cleaning. You can schedule background cleaning at each startup or shutdown, or when the browser windows are closed. While running in background Mil Shield is completely invisible.

NEW! Custom cleaning. Mil Shield allows you to add your own tracks to delete each time when the program cleans your computer. The custom cleaning can delete selected by you files, folders, registry keys and values. You can specify multiple files or values at once, using wildcards or even regular expressions.

File shredding with multiple methods. Mil Shield is capable to shred (bleach) the files before deleting them in order to make the tracks unrecoverable. This is done by user selectable method with the following choices: 1-pass overwrite with zeros or random data, 3-pass DoD 5220.22-M (8.306 E), 7-pass DoD 5220.22-M (8.306 E,C,E), 7-pass Bruce Schneier method and 35-pass Peter Gutmann method.

Built-in scheduler and command-line cleaning. You can schedule Mil Shield to clean at specific time intervals or once a day at specific time of day. For more advanced users Mil Shield 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 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.

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. All you need to do is to press certain keys together and all open Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera or Chrome windows are closed and an invisible background cleanup is started. More information 

Works even on older computers. While Mil Shield takes full benefit of the new technologies in the latest versions of Windows and Internet Explorer, it fully supports and is completely tested on the older systems like Windows 95, Windows NT 4.0 and Internet Explorer 3. Learn more 

Password generator. It is well known fact that the humans are not good at generating random numbers, letters or other symbols. This is huge problem for the security of the computer systems as the passwords are only secure if they are truly random. You can use the Password generator tool of Mil Shield to generate very strong random passwords.

Shreenshot of Mil Shield 8.1 wipe free space tool

NEW! Wipe free space (shredding of free hard drive space). When you delete a file without shredding (for example directly from Windows Explorer), its content remains on the disk for a very long time. Mil Shield allows you to wipe the free disk space on your disk drives to get rid of all remains of files that contain private information. The free space on your hard drives is securely wiped using one of the five user selectable methods, including 35-pass Gutmann algorithm.

Selective cleaning

Many of privacy threats come from features that are good and convenient: Internet cache speeds up the browsing, cookies spare you the process of entering your user information over and over again, history allows you to revisit a site without typing its web address, and so on.

Fortunately with Mil Shield you don't have to give up all these advantages in order to protect your privacy and speed up your computer. Mil Shield implements selective cleaning of many browsers tracks. Immediately after installation the program makes no assumptions about which are the sites that you consider safe and cleans all tracks at once. However, it allows you can define unlimited number of sites as trusted and they will be preserved during the cleaning.

You have fine control about which tracks for which trusted site will be protected during cleanup. For example you can protect yahoo.com from deleting of its temporary Internet files in order to speed up loading of the site but you don't have to keep the cookies that came from yahoo.com if you have a mail account or you enter any other personal information in this site.

Mil Shield support selective cleaning for Temporary Internet Files (Internet Explorer), cookies (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Chrome), history (for IE, Firefox and Chrome) and Flash cookies (all browsers).

Boss key combination

Boss key (also known as panic key, or emergency key) allows you to close all browser windows and start an invisible background cleaning with one special key combination.

In addition to all open browser 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.
  • BSplayer.
  • RealPlayer.
  • Standard Windows Games. All standard Windows games that are shipped with Windows Vista (Chess Titans, FreeCell, Hearts, InkBall, Mahjong Titans, Minesweeper, Purble Place, Solitaire, Spider Solitaire) and Windows XP (FreeCell, Hearts, Internet Backgammon, Internet Checkers, Internet Hearts, Internet Reversi, Internet Spades, Minesweeper, Pinball, Solitaire, Spider Solitaire) are closed.
  • Irfan Viewer. This application is included because it is widely used to view pictures and video clips.
  • ACDSee. This application is included because it is widely used to view pictures.
  • MSN Messenger and Windows Messenger.
  • Yahoo Messenger (Yahoo Pager).
  • AIM (AOL Instant Messenger).
