How to remove all traces of connected USB devices

When you connect a USB device with your PC or Laptop, Microsoft Windows secretly store information about connected USB device in Registry. This information remain in Registry even if you unplug the device. With right tool, anyone can easily access what you had connected.

If you do not want others to know that you have used a Flash Drive on a office computer, then you have to delete all references in the registry. You don’t have to do it manually because “USB Oblivion” Utility will do it for you.

USB Oblivion is opensource, freeware and portable application which means no installation is required. Just download and execute it.
