1. are you selling the machine with a copy of windows on it?

What is the best way to delete selected files which have been deleted but they are still on the hard drive and could be restored if you sold your computer.

You need to answer Fruit Bat /\0/\'s questions so that he (or others) can suggest a solution to your problem.

Surely you could use Paragon Disk Wiper 7.0 with which you can either erase the whole HD or just the Free Space. I would delete all the programmes you want to delete first, themn run Disk Wiper Erase "Free Disk Space""

The Programme is on PC Advisor January 2009 No 162
Or I believe you can download it from Paragon Site.
