Good windows 7 file shredder
There are also a number of entries if you just Google "File Shredder for Windows 7"
I don't know if these are as good as a Mac equivalent as I don't use a Mac, I use a real man's PC

I don't think any Windows OS's have had an integrated shredder and I go back to Win 3.0 (Now i feel quite ancient!)

No definitely not! Lots of members on this Forum use other operating systems.

I s'ppose the closest you could get with onboard tools: empty the trash bin and run a defrag.
If your data is so sensitive, why not creating a small partition for it where it can be overwritten/reformated every so often.

Have a look here:

AbsoluteShield File Shredder - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

Never used it myself, I use a little programme called cyber shredder, but the one in the link is intergrated into the 'right click' menu.
