Change of Ownership

  Lettervanman 21:24 18 Dec 2005

I have sold my old computer to a friend, she is pleased with it but for the fact that when she prints a greetings card,and other things, it says it was created by me!
Any idea how to change ownership to her?

Windows 98se

The only way I know how to change this is to reformat the Hard Drive with the Windows disc.

In microsoft word isn't there a section where you can change the author. Dunno how to do this, maybe someone with bit more knowledge could help. Sorry, but I'm not very good with users and authors etc.

In Word it is in Tools>Options, User Information tab.
