Hi all, I'm selling a pc and want to delete everything from the hard disk except the O/S. Will Window Washer delete history etc. once and for all?

Thanks for any help.

If you are selling on, I would strongly suggest you format & reinstall the OS. Especially if you have been using an online banking service. Then, at least, you will be able to sleep at night. It only takes about 40 mins, from start to finish...a small price to pay for peace of mind.

Format, reinstall and then run Eraser to wipe free space. Im a belt and braces man myself.
