    If you have CCleaner there is an option in that to delete files at Gutmann (35 Passes)
    level.

    Also couple other options:

    CCleaner deletes from the recycle bin and you can set it to do a thorough delete. I forget how many time this wipes the files.

    I use Revo Uninstaller and that comes with a tool that lets you wife the free space on your drive for security.

    BOTH FREE!!!!!

    once ccleaner is downloaded open it and select 'Options' from the list on the left hand side. Goto 'Settings' select 'Secure deletion (slower)' from the list then from the dropdown menu select 'Gutmann (35 passes)

    Hope this helps. JR
