Windows 8.1 ready

Mil Shield supports all the latest software: Windows 8.1 (both 32-bit and 64-bit), Internet Explorer 11, Firefox 29, and Chrome 35. We are adding support for each new version as soon as it becomes available. The program also works on much older PCs, Windows versions and browsers.


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. All the latest versions of the browsers are fully supported too (including Internet Explorer 11, Firefox 29 and Chrome 35).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
