Hi not sure im in the right place but i just bought myself a new computer and im selling my old one to a friend. The thing is i used to do alot of online banking and such on my last computer so i had alot of banking and personal infomation on there. The guy who is buying my old one is abit of a computer expert not that i dont trust him i would just feel more comfortable knowing all traces of that info was removed.
Is there any programmes/software or something i can do to remove this stuff?

ive gone through my computer deleted what i could find put it in recycle bin then emptied that but someone told me doing that doesnt remove it from my hard drive or something i dont dont know lol plz help :)
