    Eraser Software

    Mixed up person . . . They're probably mixed up with a company's product - like East-tec. Same name, but commercial product. For my $.02, this OSS product is better and the price is right. :D If you ordered their product, you should get yourself a refund and use this product instead. 8)

    Follow up . . . Yes, some may be problematic, but I doubt it. You wouldn't have to compile the prog into it or even necessarily link to it. Just scan the registry to see if it's there and perform the operation - and you may not even need to do that if the container has a header or other info...
