How Do I Completely And Permanently Delete A File?

Do not rely on Shift + Delete. Some applications can retrieve the data that you have "permanently" deleted. You may want to use Eraser.

You may download it from here:

http://download.cnet.com/Eraser/3000-2092_4-10231814.html

"Eraser is an advanced security tool for Windows that allows you to completely remove sensitive data from your hard drive by overwriting it several times with carefully selected patterns. The patterns used for overwriting are based on Peter Guttmann's paper Secure Deletion of Data from Magnetic and Solid-State Memory and are selected to effectively remove magnetic remnants from the hard drive.

Other methods include the one defined in the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual of the U.S. Department of Defense, and overwriting with pseudorandom data. You can also define your own overwriting methods."

Why don't you just send it to the recycle bin, then empty the recycle bin.

Use Shift + Delete on your computer will delete the file permenantly from your computer.

Press the "Shift" key and the press "Delete" button on your keyboard.

I hope it helps
