PanicWipe http://www.sadhusystems.nl/index.php?page=...=6&tab=main

Do you ever wish you could get rid of unwanted files with just one click? Try PanicWipe. PanicWipe can delete files, folders, registry keys, IE cache, history and cookies with just one click. You select wich files and folders to wipe, and wich keys to delete, PanicWipe does the rest. Instead of just "deleting" your files you can choose secure "wiping" (up to 10 times overwriting before deletion!!) wich will make your files unrecoverable. You can also specify a list of programs that will be terminated before execution, so your files won't be 'in use'. PanicWipe can be protected with a password (start/execute/cancel/close) and has a countdown timer

* The trimmer engine is presented by a COM object

* Supports any video content (DV, XviD, DivX, 3ivX, etc.)

* Supports any audio content (MPEG-1, MPEG-2 layer 2,3, AC3, etc.)

* Allows trimming AVI files contained VBR audio without synchronization loss

* Supports AVI files of the size more then 2GB

* Supports the OpenDML AVI file format extension

* Supports the native DV AVI format (both Type 1 and Type 2 in Microsoft terms)

* Performs the trimming process starting with K frame

* Cutting off several portions of a movie at one time is allowed. You can get rid of all commercials in your movie in a couple of simple steps.
