    Unwanted Tasks Added to Schedule

    The five files that I most often erase are in my list of Eraser tasks. Usually, I launch Eraser and select one of those tasks to run. Today, however, I selected one of those files in a window, right-clicked, and selected Eraser from the pull-down context menu to erase it. I now discovered...

    Unwanted Tasks Added to Schedule

    Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64 Eraser 6.2.0.2991 I still sporadically (not consistently) get the problem, at least when erasing an object (file or folder) via the Windows Explorer pull-down context menu.

    I will have several opportunities to test it later this week. In the meantime, I would appreciate if there were a change log for each new version. This could be either on your Web site or a cumulative file installed with Eraser. I prefer the Web site so that I can see what changed before...

    I just now repeated my tests and got different results. NOTE: In both the prior set of tests and the tests reported below, the target file was pasted on my Windows desktop AFTER AVG was either enabled or disabled. In Test #1, Eraser erased the .txt but created a "Queued for execution" task...

    Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64 AVG AntiVirus Free 20.5.3130 Eraser 6.2.0.2990 I installed Eraser 6.2.0.2990 without terminating anything. Instead, I rebooted after the installation. During the installation, the installer could not write one item; I selected Ignore. Eraser is NOT installed in the...

    Unwanted Tasks Added to Schedule

    I copied a plain-text file (extension .txt) and pasted it on my Windows desktop as erase-test.txt. Using Notepad, I added several lines of random text. Then I waited several minutes. I selected the file erase-test.txt, right-clicked, and selected [Eraser > Erase] from the pull-down context...

    Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64 Eraser 6.2.0.2989 I selected a file, right-click, and select Eraser from the pull-down context menu. When I was done, I terminated Eraser. When I launched Eraser again, it had a new task for the file that I erased. This seems to be a regression but with a...

    YES!! It worked. Thank you. I think this issue is now closed. HOWEVER, version 6.2.0.2988 is not yet available to the general public. The old configuration manager in me (30+ years) thinks this problem should be held open until that version becomes available.

    Aha! I jumped to a conclusion (about the only exercise I get) based on the size of the installer file. Apparently, prior versions of Eraser included .NET and were thus much larger. I installed .NET 4.7.2 on 30 July 2018 installed all updates through 5 February 2020 (my installation date, not...

    The link to Eraser 6.2.0.2987 is for a stub installer. How can I get a full installer. It is my practice -- based on 30+ years of doing configuration management on software -- to disable my Internet connection when installing new or updated software.

    Will that new version work with Windows 7?

    Under Settings, I have checked the checkbox for "Automatically remove tasks which run immediately and completed successfully". I still have this problem.
