I will be removing my personal documents, files, etc. of course prior-to selling for obvious security/personal reasons, but I want to make sure all of these, as well as internet history, temp. files, cookies, etc. are deleted. I know how to erase via the Internet Explorer via the TOOLS -> INTERNET OPTIONS ->GENERAL TAB, but is there a way to get a "deeper cleaning?"
I would like to wipe it clean, less the FORMAT drill so things like my credit card number or other personal info pops up down the road in someone else's hands, while retaining the software that's already loaded on there.
Is there a good recommended wipe program or method to erase tracks and documents on the computer?
Thanks much in advance - Jim
