Good windows 7 file shredder

Does anyone know a proven file shredding program that works on Windows 7?? When I was on XP I used Cyberscrub and it was a great program, but they have not released a version for Windows 7. Not sure what their problem is.

Here is another shredder choice.
I like Eraser becasue it is free and it had the full spectrum of delete catagories for you to choose. I personally select the DOD 7 Pass one for removing critical data files.
Use Version 5.8.8

There are so many tool available which lets you delete data permanently so that no one is able to recover it even with the use of data recovery tools. I have used this tool named as Kernel File Shredder which works on idea of overwriting the contents of file many a times making the data unrecoverable.

I vote Eraser too, and as well, use the DoD 7 pass option.
