You can delete all files/history/passwords from each browser you have by using the Tools/Options and locating the section/tabs that allow you to do this.
Download and run CCleaner to thoroughly remove all cookies, internet files and histories. Plus, whatever else you think is important. Run the Registry cleaner part of CCleaner, click to not make a backup, and clean/repair Registry problems. I would also go and run Windows' Disk Cleaner. Before cleaning and after it finished calculating disk space you can free up, select the More Options tab and click Clean up button under the System Restore heading.
I would thoroughly search through and delete any contents in personal folders under the My Documents/My Pictures/My Videos, etc..
If you are close to getting rid of computer, you might want to remove all the Restore Points or better yet, do a complete re-format and install of Operating System. If you have the manufacturer's Restore CD, use that. It will restore computer like it came out of the box.
