Default Need a suggestions of a good tool to delete cookies and internet history

I need to take my computer to a computer repair shop for an upgrade, and I want to erase all sensitive information on it, such as cookies, internet history, some office documents, and other things. I created a few CDs with the documents that I need ( inluding my personal photos and emails ) and now I want to erase the other files without formating the drive

go into the registry and delete everything under internet history and for the obvious files if you use windows internet explorer then its C:\Documents and Settings\your user name\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files. if you use firefox then just press ctrl+shift+m
