I need the eraser. The reason I am asking for advice here is because, although I have been using eraser since the time when Sammy Tolvin was maintaining it, and have never had any trouble with it, I know one has to be extremely cautious in using it because it is so "permanent" in its effects. I am new to Windows 8.1, and do not really feel comfortable with it yet. I have also never before run programs on 64 bit.
Have the developers/maintainers issued any instructions or advise on which version of Eraser should be used on Windows 8.1/64 bit? Eraser is a good tool; but it's not something one wants to start "hacking" AROUND WITH.
