    I just installed McAfee shredder v 4.02 in a new PC running windows
    XP.

    My only option is to "Erase files and folders"

    'Erase free space" is grayed out.

    This program is included in the Virus Scan v 7 disk. Shredder worked
    fine on my old pc under W-98. Is there something in XP that prevents
    this from runing? Is there a built-in shredder in XP?

    Thanks,
    Tony

    Try this. They probably want you to "upgrade".
