    I have the quickrestore disk, but I'd rather leave the programs on it. I just want my personal stuff gone.

    delete any other files / folders you have created on the drive
    Download and install Eraser
    open Eraser's properties and set the secure wiping as required
    run eraser and wipe the free disk space of your hard drive
    that should do you
