ContentWatch Upgrades ContentCleanup to 2.1

ContentWatch has announced ContentCleanup 2.1, a tool that helps users identify and erase unwanted content and files from their computers. As users surf the Internet, Web sites often push content onto their computers without the user ever knowing it happened. This simple-to-use tool helps users analyze, categorize and erase unwanted content from their computers. ContentCleanup 2.1 starts by running a comprehensive scan on the user's computer and categorizes them in file types: History, Cookies, Documents, Temporary Internet files, Images, Audio, and Video.

ContentCleanup 2.1 further analyzes each file in depth using ContentProtect's dynamic analysis engine which identifies potentially objectionable files and categorizes them into one or more of 28 different content categories, ranging from Pornography or Adult/Mature to Sports and Travel. By doing this, it enables the user to easily identify objectionable files and delete them, freeing up disk space on the user's computer and enhancing its performance.

Other ContentCleanup features include:
- ContentCleanup Wizard - Walks users through the process of safely deleting Internet content from their computer
- Thumbnail View and Blur Technology - Allows users to view each file in a "thumbnail view" and images in "blurred" mode to determine if it is suitable before opening the file for further inspection and avoid exposure to objectionable images.
- Categorization - ContentCleanup scans and categorizes files into file types: History, Cookies, Documents, or Temporary Internet files; as well as 28 different content categories, ranging from Adult/Mature to Sports and Travel.
- New File Types - ContentCleanup scans and categorizes all Internet-related files including images, video, audio, text, and program files.
- Quarantine - Enables users to move objectionable items to an encrypted quarantine folder for later review or deletion.
- Automatic Updates - ContentWatch updates users with the latest rules, definitions and technology as they become available. These updates can occur manually or automatically depending on the user's preference.
