Cleaning all personal and banking info from PC.

  qlrgeorge 21:13 20 Oct 2008

I'm replacing my PC with a Laptop and would like to give my old PC to a charity. Is there any software that I can buy to erase all my personal information and my Banking and Creit card details as I've read that some people have had bad experiences after giving their computers to a charity. I'm not an absolute beginner but not really upto speed.

Do you have the CD to reinstall the operating system?

Best option is to wipe the drive with something like Killdisk then reinstall windows.

I cannot say I've used either so make your own mind up.

Fruit Bat /\0/\s suggestion is also very valid.

Why not keep the drive and put it in a caddy, run it from USB. fit a cheap new drive in the computer to sell it etc
