Hi, I'm completely new to the forum and new to Eraser. I just downloaded Eraser 5.8. But have yet to use it. Started reading the forums and saw posts warning users not to use it. Is it safe now? Or should I uninstall it? And download an earlier version. I downloaded 5.8. for wiping my system's free space. But I've suddenly got cold feet. Any help would be appreciated. I'm running Windows Xp on a Packard Bell and I'm not the most technically adept person around. Thanks in adavance.
