    BOULDER, Colo., April 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Webroot Software, Inc. today
 unveiled version 4.0 of its popular and affordable Internet security software
 Window Washer.  This new version elevates the level of functionality and
 navigation of privacy and system performance to an unprecedented level.
 Window Washer 4.0 is available now for $29.95 on http://www.webroot.com and in
 a variety of computer retail outlets.
     Anonymizer.com has co-branded Window Washer 4.0 and is offering 1 free
 month of premium Anonymous Web Surfing to users who purchase the co-branded
 version for $29.95 at http://www.anonymizer.com.
     "Privacy is extremely important in every aspect of our lives," stated
 Webroot Software, Inc. founder Steve Thomas, "Window Washer 4.0 gives the user
 the ability to keep their online and computer activities private."
     Window Washer provides a secure and convenient method for users to protect
 their privacy and to improve the overall performance of their operating
 systems.  By "washing away" traces of the Internet and computer activity,
 Window Washer cleans Internet browsers and system files.  For browsers, such
 as Internet Explorer, AOL, Netscape, Opera, Neoplanet, etc., Window Washer
 cleans the following:  cache, cookies, history, drop down address bar, and
 auto complete data forms.  For system files, Window Washer cleans the
 following: recycle bin, Windows run and find history, temporary scan disk
 files, recently viewed pictures, recently opened documents, MS Office 2000
 tracks, Windows temporary files folder, and much more.
     Window Washer can be configured to run automatically in the background and
 "wash" users' cookies and other selected files or folders at start-up,
 shutdown, or at scheduled intervals ranging from every 15 minutes to once a
 month.  In addition to this automatic option, this program is also notable for
 its ease of use.
     "We live in an age where information is as good as gold, and with the
 heightened attention on privacy and identity theft, the combination of both
 the latest version of Window Washer and Anonymizer's Anonymous Surfing
 Services should be regarded as a pre-requisite for all Internet browsing and
 for everyone who uses a computer."
                                 Lance Cottrell -- founder of Anonymizer.com
 
     Anonymizer.com's Anonymous Surfing Services is a convenient and effective

 addition, users can help prevent others from snooping into their web use, stop
 "personal profiling" by web sites, ISPs, and advertisers, and prevent identity
 theft, credit card fraud, and cyberstalking.  Anonymous Web Surfing is not
