Windows 7: Active Kill Disc advice needed

Active Kill Disc advice needed

I am recommending Active Kill Disc to a friend who wants to clear her computer before donating to charity. Can she effectively run Active Kill Disc from the "Run" option after download? I don't think she would have any idea on how to change the boot order sequence and further create a bootable disc from which to run this program.

Thanks for your advice.

Windows will not allow direct writing to the disk while it is running. Anyway, Active Kill Disk is not a Windows program. The only way it can run is from external bootable media.
