Hi, I Wonder if anyone can suggest the best method of clearing old (semi confidential) information off a PC prior to me selling it. Perhaps there are some free programs available suitable for this. Appreciate your assistance on this one.Regards.harleyd

format it and do a clean install of the operating system.

That's all you need.

Unless you are a top level spook all you need to do is as SG Atlantis wrote. There is no need to be ultra paranoid.
