Hello! Is there a tool that will delete cookies, temporary files and history for good!! I re-formatted my hard-drive and also used few tools! Is there a tool to completely delete these files?

to be honest it dosnt actually clean it all up and the information is still easily recoverable with any cleaner.

The only wy to be sure that it is removed is to destroy the hard drives that the info is on and get a new 1.

ask me any question is any occur.

I think he means you should fill your disk with zeros using soemthing along the lines of a Linux boot disk

My understanding is that this will permanenty remove all data
