There is no way to avoid using the restore CDs and even then there could be some rogue information left in a sector that was not overwritten. Is there anything that you can't let others see or use on that PC?
I want to sell my laptop and restore its original condition. I'd like to erase all of my data and added programs so when I sell the laptop, it is basically like its original factory-like condition? Is there software that will do this?
