    Hi all
    I have just been given an older computer with 512mb RAM, 1Gb Athlon CPU, Windows Home Edition. I want to clean the hard drive, but maintain the operating system. I know Norton Utilities has something for this, but I'm not a fan of Norton. As this is a secondary computer, I don't mind experimenting (at least more than usual ;). I've heard mention of Eraser found at www.heidi.ie. Has anyone ever heard of this? Any other suggestions? It's not one I want to spend alot of $$ on, but would like to give the last owners some privacy.

    Thanks
