Does this version of Eraser support Windows 8, it does not indicate that it does. Need to know if I should try it on WIndows 8 and 8.1, we have many WIndows 8.1 devices in our field force. Thanks.

Further to my post above, I Googled "does Eraser work with Windows 8", and found

I tried it myself, on 8.1, but could not get the Right-Click fubctionality. I believe it "partly" works. I hope the Owner takes up this task.

I, too, am wondering if Eraser works with Windows 8.1. We have been using eraser for several years on Windows XP and really like it. When we upgraded to Windows 8.1, I could not get Eraser to download. Help please.

The latest beta works on windows 8.1 http://eraser.heidi.ie/download.php?id=296

The comments on CNET refer to the countless adware versions of eraser which have cropped up and are beyond our control - Always download the product from sourceforge and make sure it is digitally signed.
