Yeah, there is... but if you simply empty the recycle bin, it takes someone awful motivated and (most likely) with physical access to your computer to recover them.

I'm not sure how "secure" you want to be, but the Recycle Bin should be more than effective.

Nah I would like something that completely covers everything, including re-writing the files that I delete.

It will still work if it is a trial, it's not going to get to the end of the trial and go here's all the files we shredded, and we undid all the fixes

If the trial is valid, run shredder, it cannot unshred them when the trial ends

What do you mean by files? What sort of files do you mean? Documents, Temporary Files, Internet Cache or what?
