Keeping my files private

I have someone i know coming over to install a router, seeing as i've had problems, however there are some files that he can't (business stuff). I've deleted them but want to now how to erase any traces of them. how can i?

Do you work for MI5? No? Then don't worry about it. The only thing that he will do on your PC as part of the process is open your browser and use it to access the router. It takes all of five minutes, so watch over him if you're that worried about it.

yep i agree with ade.h if hes just installing a router he should not need to access anything other than your web browser
