Hello, I need to leave my pc clean for the next officer who will take over in using it. Obviously I will have to delete all my stuff from the hdd, but I also want to scrub it clean in order not to leave any traces of the stuff I would have deleted. Can someone recommend a good scrubbing tool to use? Thanks.

I have used Eraser for many years currently 5.8.7, but when I have loaded the new 6 series it gives me freezing problems (Windows 7) I have looked on the net and there are many with this problem.
The older version 5.8.7 works very well

Thanks friends, but all I really need to do is erase all my data on the pc, I want to erase all traces of me on that pc. The programs can remain because they're for work any way. Thanks.

Thats what eraser does.

You can securely delete all your files with up to 35 times overwriting. Then wipe all the unallocated areas of the disk in a similar fashion.

Use ccleaner click here as well with the option set to overwrite and this will clean Internet Histories, cache, TIF & registry.

This leaves all the operating system and application files untouched.
