But since I'm already flapping my jaws: Personally, I would use something
like a "disk wipe utility". I am not really a Windows user (I use Linux),
but you can Google for it to get some good hits. Such as:
http://www.diskwipe.org/ which is not to be taken as a recommendation by me
for this product, but is just an example. There are many such. If you are
really worried about proprietary information, then I'd strongly suggest
getting a "DOD quality" wipe. Another thing to think about is the other
software on the laptop, especially the Windows. Windows in _NOT_ free! And
you really should see what it would take to transfer the Windows license on
the existing hardware to a new user. The same with any other "non free"
software. If you don't, your company _might_ be libel to the copyright
owners and be subject to being sued. I'm not really too sure of this
latter, but if this is a large enough company, I'd run it by the legal
department just for comfort.

The temperature of the aqueous content of an unremittingly ogled
culinary vessel will not achieve 100 degrees on the Celsius scale.
