Removal of hard drive enough?

  Jollyjohn 09:30 23 Nov 2014

If you physically remove the hard drive that is sufficient. There is nowhere else in the PC that retains any information once power is switched off.

An alternative is to boot from a cd, format both partitions, write random stuff to the partitions, format again and reinstall the operating system, this would render your data unrecoverable.

Also consider formatting the partitions before you remove the hard drive unless you need to retain the data.
