    While, technically this is an announcement of sorts, it should really be posted in the hardware thread for you to get the best results.

    I would reformat the harddrive and reinstall the OS; this will wipe it clean and you will not have to worry about passwords

    it will also get rid of any spyware or viruses on it

    Best of the Best!

    I needed a laptop for reading emails and using word at uni and thought getting a refurbished laptop would be my cheapest option. Finally bought a refurbished laptop from "ElectroComputerWarehouse" and the product id is "dell_latitude_d610_1.86_60GB".
