My Gravatar is from Troy Snow's photography. Check him out at his Flickr page and tell him I sent you: http://www.flickr.com/photos/troysnow/ . Even though we tend to use the same goofy kitten face as an avatar, we are not the same person and have no affiliation. Other than good taste in avatars, anyway.

comment Permanently delete files from a flash drive
Governments use shredders for data destruction. A hammer is a high velocity shredder. If someone needs to be told to break the chip and not just the plastic shell, they need more help than a Q/A site can give them. Also, no one mentioned governments until just now, so that's a bit of a goalpost shift.

@Eyla I completely understand your situation. For most of my professional career I've worked in the internal IT department of non-profits or as an external contractor. Many times I've had to make solutions using chewing gum and double-sided Scotch tape. Just be advised that those solutions nearly universally cause more loss in the long run and even the ruination of the organization (as doomsday as that sounds, it can happen and has happened). Sad to say, you cannot do exactly what you want using a no-cost solution.

@Rushino in that case you can safely ignore MikeyB and voretaq7's responses, unless you want to do this from a Linux live CD. =)

comment Stubborn APIPA Issue (possible IPv4 problem, IPv6 = okay?)
Things have been tainted now with the system restore. Always uninstall updates from the Programs and Features tool. System restore is a last ditch effort to get a system up so you can remove files and then drop a grenade.
