You can use built in, acronis, parigon disk suite, and abt 50 more.

I prefer parigon, or acronis

What's the exact name of the Acronis app that would let me erase my entire drive?

Acronis Disk Director is no doubt the best, but I've been told that Windows 7 has issues with it. But since you guys are still recommending it I am beginning to wonder why I have been told that.

By the way, erase and format are two different things. Luckily Acronis can do them both. However Acronis is not the most secure eraser out there.

True, you need KillDisk for that.
