Question about Fujitsu Siemens SCENIC P300 PC Desktop
I bought a E Machine tower from a thift shop and it still has the previous owners name and other stuff on it. How do I do a complete system restore or cleam the hard drive?
First make a recovery copy of the OS. Then look over the programs menu to see if you can use any of those programs yourself. Copy those too, anf then, if you really want to, format the drive. Run as many of the programs as you might want to keep, and delete the rest. I do not suggest performing a generic, kill everything format. Be selective. Connect online, and see what it can do. If it does crazy things, perform an intruder check before considering hostile actions against the OS.

Well, is the best bet, to format the system, if you of course have the installations CDs, and licence, and drivers, for any
undesire situation of virus, as nenalex2002 says, and other malware situations, hacking, as a rule, FORMAT your system.
and protect with good antivirus, firewall.

Personally i'd just do a format and reinstall the operating systems. You never know if the previous owner got some spyware / troyan / virus, so it cannot hurt starting fresh, plus it's so easy if you have the system disks!
Also remember that if it's an older computer with less than 512MB and windows XP installed, you might want to add some memory modules.
