I use Copy/Wipe, given your computer has a floppy drive. Works for me plus it doubles as a cloning utility. Free is always a price I can afford.

I was just reading and I didn't know this but there is an option for a bootable CD/DVD. Plus I didn't mention before, but this erases to exceed governmental standards (such as DoD 5220.22-M, NAVSO P-5239-26, etc.) Sorry about the confusion.

Awesome- Just need it to delete all traces of a Trojan. Downloading now

Should've checked myself for a CD version before declining your reply so fast- sorry

Do you have any idea how to use the plug-in to make a bootable disk- because I'm lost....

I don't want to do it within Windows- I don't understand how I would erase the content off the disk running Windows...if the program was running within Windows?

Ahh I need help
