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

Thanks!

In a nutshell
Create a New User Account with admin rights
login to this new account
remove your user account and delete user files
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
