    Thread moved to the BlackHat Lounge.

    Regarding CCleaner, it will delete cookies and temporary
    internet files, but I don't think it will completely remove
    data to the degree that it could not be recovered through
    the use of forensic software.

    I am thinking more for lead injection purpose etc.

    CCleaner, just doesn't seem like it would really cover it from a network viewpoint . . . am I overthinking this?

    Beware, CC cleaner will not 'clean' all tracking from google, amazon and other similar networks. Your best bet is the use CC cleaner and at very least use new IP with different browser that was never used to login to tracking networks. Better, yet you can also use differing IP with new operating system via VM Ware or dual operating system configuration. I hope this helps.

    They have an option to wipe unused data, but I never used it since I've assumed it would take way too long especially with Hundreds of unused GB of HDD space.

    We do have a really nice IP system in place that uses RDSL lines only.

    Just want to make sure the other basis are covered.

    Whats wrong with cable? You can also switch IP's in about the same amount of time.

    Well, like I said - we have a commercial IP solution in place.

    We just want to make sure the browser history etc. is adequately covered.
