  1. Does re-installing Windows erase my non-Windows programs


    Hello.I've seen some questions regarding this, but the answers aren't explicit enough to allay my fears. What I want to know, with a Windows re-install, does it erase my programs in C:\Programs and C:\Programs x86?If so, what are my options? Can I copy those programs to another drive? I don't want to refresh Windows without knowing the consequences! Any advice you can give me would be terrific! Mark

    :)

  3. Windows program to secure erase files only

    I tried doing a search and only found optimal ways to fully erase a disc. Since there are a ton of programs I thought it best to just ask for a current recommendation. I would like to erase a few folders only on a W7 machine and do not need a full time paid program.

    Thank you for any suggestions.
