To make a long story short, I need to get old deleted files off of my computer. When you delete files with the recycling bin, I know they are still there and can be recovered. So I'm curious if there's a program or process I can do to make them completely gone without changing what I still have on there. Any help is appreciated.

edit: This is on Vista

Eraser
Use it to delete the files securely.
For files you've already deleted, have it wipe the free space.

Once that's done, you'd have to send the drive to the CIA/FBI/NSA to have any chance of recovering anything.
