I upgraded to SecureAnywhere Complete, but miss using Window Washer.
That being said, what feature or functions were dropped or not included in the new COMPLETE software, like: wash SLACK FILE?
THANKS in advance for anyone who responds

Hello @,

Window Washer is an incredibly outdated program, that is why we redesigned it and it essentially evolved into the System Optimizer which is much more efficient.
Unfortunately, Webroot SecureAnywhere does not include a free space wash.  However, slack space can be cleared when using the Maximum setting for Secure Erase. You can learn more about the secure erase feature at  http://www.webroot.com/En_US/SecureAnywhere/PC/WSA_PC_Help.htm#C9_SystemOptimizer/CH9g_UsingSecureErase.htm.
You can also learn more about the system optimizer here.
If you would like to suggest enhancements to the SecureAnywhere program, you can do so at http://community.webroot.com/t5/Ideas-and-Suggestions/idb-p/Ideas.
To weigh in regarding the free space wash in particular, please navigate to this page.
I hope this helps and please do not hesitate to let me know if there is anything else I can do to assist.

Webroot Spy Sweeper and Window Washer along with another anti virus software have been on all 3 of my computers until 2011 when my subscribtion expired. I the upgraded to Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete at that time, and have been satisfied with it since.
I want to thank you for your clearification of how the two softwares compare and where to read additional information.
