how do i get stuff off my laptop?

we have two laptops, dh's and mine..and mine isn't used hardly at all, so i just put an ad on craigslist for it, so we can have a little extra money,..dd is needing a new car seat, on top of a move within the month. so money's tight. so how do i delete all the stuff i had on there, to completely wipe it off the laptop?

  • do a system restore

  • A system restore will not delete all of your files. If you have sensitive information, like account numbers, on that hard drive, you will probably want to get software that will overwrite the entire drive. I put a link on my reply to this question in Money & Work.

  • Be sure to copy any pictures to a USB flash drive before you do a system restore.
