What is the difference between Ad-Aware's and Ad-Watch's TrackSweep?

Ad-Aware:

By checking the buttons next to the items of your choice, and clicking 'Clean', the tracks left behind when you surf the Internet can be cleaned from Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Opera web browsers.

The browser needs to be closed to be cleaned.

Ad-Watch:

Ad-Watch TrackSweep automatically deletes cookies that are in the Detection Database. If you do not want TrackSweep to clean all cookies that are in detection, you can adjust the Ad-Watch settings so that cookies are not automatically deleted.

Check the buttons next to the items of your choice just like Ad-Aware's TrackSweep. The difference is that tracks left behind when you surf the Internet will be cleaned from Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Opera web browsers, when you close the browser.
