An exe? No source??? Just "setup.exe"???? Are you crazy?
Or .. get GNU coreutils for windows :
and just use 'shred'.
(although 'man shred' specifically makes note about journaled
filesystems -- which NTFS is. I have not forensically analyzed the
effectiveness of this tool on a specific file -- only on a block device).
SysInternals also offers a freebie tool called 'sdelete'. Source for
that is also available :
(and in the discussion about 'how sdelete works' they reference the same
problem regarding journeled filesystems).
If the emminently wise gent from GroundZero wishes to comment on how his
perticular product addresses these issues, then that might be fodder for
the list (versus the ongoing flames).
