Deleted data on hard disc - Windows Setup, Administration & Security

I recently ran a "Disc Investigator" program and found that, although deleted (I use AOL) the subject heading and the E Mail address of every E Mail I have sent are shown on my hard disc, also the E Mail address and subject heading of all the spam mail I have received is also shown. I have ran several "Eraser" programmes but the data is still there Can anyone help Thanks...

    Default Deleted data on hard disc

    I recently ran a "Disc Investigator" program and found
    that, although deleted (I use AOL) the subject heading
    and the E Mail address of every E Mail I have sent are
    shown on my hard disc, also the E Mail address and
    subject heading of all the spam mail I have received is
    also shown.

    I have ran several "Eraser" programmes but the data is
    still there

    Can anyone help

    Thanks

    ya, here is a "worst case scenario"...

    remove your HD from the machine, and put it in the microwave. Turn the
    microwave on "HIGH" and cook for 10 minutes. The information will be gone
    (100% success on this method). Otherwise, use a low level format util >20
    times or pgp disk wipe.

    Good luck :-)
