Pass Computer on to goddaughter.

  donmar 13:13 13 Jun 2006

I would like to pass on my old computer but erase all my confidential stuff.
I don't have a copy of win98 or win me but I do have a restore disc from Dell which does not seem to include an operating system.

What would be the safest way for me to do this.

You can just delete all the information and give the computer to her with all the programmes on or use the restore disk which should take it back to day one minus all your info......and updates. merely deleting is the best and easiest way and it should not take too long.

Thanks a lot Gandalf.

You could also make a present of a brand spanking new copy of win xp if the computer spec is suitable together with a copy of open office which is a freebie lookalike for msoft office

Specs not up to xp but thanks for the suggestion.
