How To Wipe Your Computer

Computing : Hardware

If you are going to sell your computer, or just donate it, the key you need to remember first is to remove all your files.

First, uninstall the applications you added above the basic installation: use add / remove programs and go through the list.

Then, back up and wipe all your personal files: manually go through the folders on your hard drive and delete.

You may want to consider re-formatting the hard drive and re-installing the operating system of choice.
