hi all i just bought a computer from a car boot sale and i have found a picture of a naked women on it! is there any way of checking to see if there is any other inappropriate material on it without looking through it all, i mean even after something is deleted it is still there isnt it? i dont want to get into trouble for having anything on it i shouldnt have. i dont really want to reformat it but i want to 'clean' it so to speak
reformatting wont actually wipe out the data but it will make everything very hard to find, i suggest using a program like norton wipe info or sure delete which overwrite rubbish on the entire drive then refomat after that. i wouldnt be afraid of second hand computers just make sure they are cheap.
