Hi, Xion44. :) I use WXP home 32 bit, so cannot say about vista. But . . .


Sdelete, from sysinternals, is very solid with wxp. Very light installation and operation. I use it. It says it works w/ wxp and higher.

Eraser is good with WXP, I use v. 5.84. Later versions may have problems, and there is no indication that older versions work with vista.

This post by Hazelnut has a link to another forum where the problems are described. Much good information.
