5 December 2022 improvements: SHA1 digest replaced by SHA256
Update history

6.13 • 05 Dec 2022

With this update we are removing SHA1 code signing certificate from our executables. The SHA1 digest was deprecated by Microsoft many years ago. We keept it after that for many more years just to support old operating systems. From now on our code will be signed by modern SHA256 only. Thus, legacy systems, such as Windows 7 and earlier will see "unsigned executable" warning, because they don't recognize newest SHA256. You may still use our app, just click "yes" or "approve" to continue. Just a warning message on a legacy systems will change from normal blue to yellow warning.

6.11 • 17 Sep 2022

We thank our users who spent some time reporting small bugs to our developers! Thank you so much, guys! Your support helps us notice even smallest mistakes. As a gift, we will provide free Professional license of our product for those who helped us.
This release includes several bug fixes which were reported by our users.

6.09 • 06 Feb 2022

In this update we are cleaning code of our application by removing legacy, not very important functions. For example, we have disabled error reporting completely. Also, a warning that requires you to check for updates won't appear anymore. This is up to you, from now on!

6.08 • 23 May 2021

This is a great update that includes many performance and security improvements. Please note that all functionality of the app is untouched, we are just optimizing core procedures.
- Removed subscription offer. Since we no longer send newsletter by email we will not disturb you with the screen that offers email subscription.
- The program will not collect anonymous usage statistics anymore.
- Changed interval for checks for free updates, previously it was once per 5 days, and now it's once per 14 days.
- Removed several useless links in the menu of the application, making interface light.
- Removed 2K of programming codes that no longer in use.
- Added new code signing certificate for top maximum security.

6.07 • 07 Nov 2019

We can't provide more details about all the changes, because there are more than hundred, its better to take a look. In one word - it's a new program. Give it a try. If you will have any problems with the new version, please report them to us as soon as possible.

5.12 • 15 Feb 2018

CRITICAL UPDATE. This update is very important. It fixes critical bug, please install as soon as possible.
• Details about the problem. Recently we have moved to a new server and the new software on our new server was not compatible with old versions of our programs. The problem was in conflict between two security protocols: our programs use TLS version 1.0, but new server accepts only TLS version 1.2. Because of that all programs which we have released before will be unable to communicate with the server. If you will not install this update you will not be able to receive updates in the future, subscribe, activate or anything else that requires interaction with the server. Your program will be disconnected forever. Please accept our apologies, this situation made a lot of pain to us, we really didn't like to update all programs at once, but this is the only one solution.
• Added support for security TLS version 1.2.
• Added security patch for updates, to prevent such situation in the future.

5.11 • 06 Feb 2018

Minor update that fixes issues with translations and security.
• German, greek, polish and french translations was corrected by human.

5.04 • 17 Oct 2016

This release includes visual and hidden changes, it's recommended for everyone because this update fixes several issues with the program stability. Changes are as follows:
• We made changes to the program icon: still the same, but a little different. Now it looks in style with our other programs.
• The most important: we have corrected 3 security flaws which stop our program with the error message. Do you remember, sometimes you saw a message that access to deleted file denied (or when you choose some protected file) and the program finishes. This wont happen again, sorry.
• The program will not ask administrative privileges when deleting files which are located on the non-system disks. This is convenient.
• We have added warning for you if the program's interface was translated automatically, so you can switch to original english if you don't like automatic translation. Don't worry, this warning appears only once.
• We have added link for activation of the program (however, this functionality still in beta testing). We will tell you about this option later.

5.03 • 05 Sep 2016

• In this release we have added turkish translation for the programs interface. Very big thanks to volunteer who made this for us and for you for free!
• In this release we made very big step ahead for quality. Our program will now track any possible error which may appear in our product and report them to us. Just think: you saw some error message, and usually you can do nothing about this, but... In background... In a few seconds our engineers will receive alert about this error. And we will start working to find reason of the error, and find a solution to it. We hope this new functionality will reduce number of problems with our products, and minimize error messages, make our software high-quality not just in words. This function does not require any additional actions on your side, and there is no settings at all.
• Now the program will remove temp files which is usually left after update. Thus, the program does not waste space.

5.02 • 16 Feb 2016

This update is very important for overall security. It contains a few major and minor changes, namely:
• We have improved the procedure for file deletion, this change applies to all security algorithms within the program. In the earlier versions, our program prevented caching using standard features of Microsoft Framework. Now we do the prevention of caching using the native Windows API procedure, which proved to be is more secure.
• From now on, all connections to our site (for example, checking for updates) are made via SSL. It's a secure web protocol that can not be hacked.
• From now on, if there is an updated version of the program, you will be able to review the section "whats new" before the installation of the new version. You can also choose to skip the installation of the update.
• When you install an old version of our product you will see a notification that a new version is available. We made this because many web sites keep our setup files in the cache, and offer an old version to customers, whereas there is a new one.
• When a new version of the program is found, the program will show you a dialog for installation. Earlier, the program used to show just a small text message at the bottom of the window, which was easy to miss.
• Reduced system load on Windows startup.
• Program signed by a new code signing certificate (sha256).

5.01 • 03 Jan 2016

This release of the program deals with the translation of the interface. We implemented 8 different text translations, using Google automatic translator. Currently, our program supports the same languages as our web site does, namely English (obviously!), German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Portuguese, French, and Japanese. We know that Google automatic translations are not very good, but this is a chance for you if you wish to help us! If you have spare time, you can join our team of volunteers and help us translate our program. Feel free to contact us for more information.

5.00 • 31 Dec 2015

Today we release a completely new version of this program, version 5th series. It has a new look and style (which you can change by choosing colors for every element). All codes are re-written, interface is made more friendly for any user. We also added several security algorithms for data destruction, not well-known, but very secure. Also, the icon of the program is changed, it is now red. Starting with version 5, the installation will be based on InnoSetup for a maximum convenience.
