PC world would probably not find anything anyway and as long as its not child porn its not illegal.

tools-internet options -(temp internet files)delete files + clear history will clear any thing from the internet cache

Run disk defragmenter overnight this will help your PC run better plus in the process of moving files will overwrite those pics makng them unrecoverable to normal operations.

If you want to go even further:- File erasers :-
Eraser click here
Ultrawipe click here
SuperShredder click here

wil overwrite the files serveral times to a non recoverable state.

Unless they have specialist equipment they will not find the files on your PC. If it is not child porn there is no offence but for your own peace of mind click here. Use this to clean your Hard Drive of this and any other unwanted files
