I am going to be leaving a job soon, and would like to clean up after
myself. I'd like to get rid of cookies, history, favorites, the connection
between my passport account and my windows account, etc. Are there any good
tools for this out there?

Deleting your account etc. is really the system administrator's
job. You may not even be authorised to delete files that you
have accumulated while working for the company. Your
employment contract may well say that the company owns
all such intellectual property, and they may wish to archive
all files to a CD.

To protect your personal information and data from any future users
of average skills, you should, at the very least, format the hard drive
and reinstall only the OS and those applications whose licenses are to
be included in the transfer. If you wish to do a more thorough job of
protecting your personal data, WipeDrive 2.2.1
(http://www.accessdata.com/Product07_Overview.htm?ProductNum=07) meets
U.S. DoD standards for securely cleaning surplus unclassified hard
drives, and could be used before formatting and reinstalling the OS and
applications.
