Netbook Privacy // Delete all private data (passwords, bookmarks etc.)

I want to sell my ASIS Eee 901 netbook and need to delete all private data.
I know doing a safe format and overwrite all partitions would be a safe way to do it, but I need to leave all software on the box.
Apart from deleting all MSIE and FF bookmarks and privacy data, are there any other hidden data I should delete as well? Guideline, tool?

If your just wanting to remove private data such as Temporary files, history, cookies, Autocomplete form history, index.dat from your web browser, have a registry cleaner, and removes temp files from third-party applications, this will do just fine. Here's something else you'll might want to look at as well, it does something similar as CCleaner. It's called SpeedUpMyPC by Uniblue. Here's the link:
Hi go4java,

There's a program called WipeDrive, this program is intended to wipe your drive for safety reasons. Here's the link:

Thanks, but I don't want to WIPE the drive, just erase private data (form data etc.).
Will CCleaner do the job "safely"?
Thank you go4java!
