I like Eraser, it does a better job than many others I have tried. It
can 'erase' ntfs alternate data streams, swap file, cluster tips and its
easy to use. It's thorough and now open source too.
Although, if your going to throw them away anyway...the most secure and
fun method involves sledge hammers and other blunt force instruments. ;)
