Probably but it depends on how much trouble someone wants to go to in order to recover it.

Try a program like eraser from click here to wipe the disk if you are concerned.

Generally speaking, once the PC has been used a bit any deleted data is overwritten anyway.

'Can anyone tell me please if deleted info. can be recovered' depends on how paranoid/careful you are. Merely deleting a file will render it incapable of being seen or recovered by most people on the planet. Using a programme like Ccleaner will delte virtually all internet usage.

If you want to be ultra picky and dedicated deleted data can be reconstructed even after reformatting a disk up to 8 times and can easily be reclaimed after using most of the eraser programmes that are about. The programmes that do this are hugely expensive (£7500 when I last looked) and are usually used by Plod, spooks and the like. Unless you are well dodgy there is no need to use an erase programme; Ccleaner or the one you use will be more than enough.
