br3: I wouldn't mess with the sqlite file and it looks like Password Exporter doesn't handle importing. Try: http://www.ghacks.net/2007/10/25/import-and-export-firefox-passwords/ ... post in forums if you have further issues.

Your instructions above say "Launch Start Tor Browser.exe and answer a few quick questions about your connection". Those instructions are misleading and confusing. I was stumped for a while until I realized the "Start Tor Browser" file is a shortcut, NOT an executable. Please correct the instructions by removing the text ".exe".

Faust, Daniel Feenberg is (according to LinkedIn) currently an IT Director at the National Bureau of Economic Research, so Wikipedia's label of "economist" appears to be a mistake. Also reference the 2006 NIST Special Publication.... so which computer scientists claim any data can be recovered after one pass? Also, I thought it was generous to write that each cleaner probably finds things the other doesn't and that CCleaner is older and more mature. CCleaner is not a bad tool and certainly does many things well.

Used this to clean up more than 6 gigs of information off a reasonably old Win 7 x64 machine recently. I don't know that it had a major impact on speed, but certainly like that extra 6 gigs. Love this program.

"BleachBit Is the October [2013] Project of the Month [at SourceForge.net].

BleachBit is a nice tool for freeing disk space on Windows and Linux systems. BleachBit also helps to preserve privacy; in this time of privacy concerns, it might be something you want to check out. It's even caught the attention of computer security Technologist Bruce Schneier in The Guardian (http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/sep/05/nsa-how-to-remain-secure-surveillance) and in Wired (http://www.wired.com/opinion/2013/10/149481/).
