Anyone have actual experience with secure erase software?

I might try to sell (or give away) a used PC and would like to secure erase the two hard drives in it. I don't want to delete the system so the software needs to secure erase only deleted files and not the entire drive. It would be nice if it can also erase internet cookies, and other similar non essential files even if I did not delete them.

Anyone with "actual experience" using a secure erase software that doesn't install adware or that is really hard to de-install if things go badly, that you can recommend?

Thanks,
Sky
