Windows Vista: Removing Personal Data From Your Files

In Windows Vista you can add information to music and photo files such as titles, ratings, comments, and more. Although, if you don't want to share this personal data if you share these files with other people you can remove it.

Right-click a file, choose Properties, then click the Details tab. At the bottom of the window there is a link called 'Remove Properties and Personal Information.' From there you can remove the information from the file, or create a copy of the file with that data removed.

I tried that and when you click on details the author's name and last saved by name still appear.

When I forward this file will the end user be able to see this information if they click on properties?
