Newer releases?

This is the last release of Eraser from me. If you are looking for a newer version, see the web site of the new maintainer instead.

Availability of v5.3

Download Eraser v5.3 for Windows 95, 98, ME, NT 4.0 and 2000 from SourceForge (Feb 3, 2007; 751K). Free software.


If you have an older version of Eraser installed on your system, make sure to uninstall it before installing the latest version. If the uninstaller asks you to restart the computer, do it now.

Uncompress the archive, "", into a temporary directory (you will need an application like WinZip for this). Read "readme.txt" completely before installing.

Install Eraser by running the setup program, "setup.exe". The archive also contains a digital signature for the setup program so you can verify its authenticity. After the installation is completed, you can remove the temporary files.

Known problems

I have put together a list of known problems with v5.3. Fixing these will be up to the new maintainer.
