No, it will only perform a normal deletion filtering by a particular extension. Nothing can 100% prevent undeletion to be true.

You need to do a "secure deletion" or a "free space wipe" to prevent it for the most part. CCleaner includes an option to do this, which you should run after deleting files the normal way. That should prevent recovery by most normal programs.
