Take your pick:
(Note that "Format" or "Delete Partition" will not erase the data)

1. Remove the hard drive. Discard computer w/o hard drive.

2. Purchase "Wipe Disk" utility ($30 at OfficeDepot) or trust a similar, but free utility at

3. Have a machine shop (or get brave) and drill several holes in the hard drive... impossible to recover data.

4. If someone suggests a magnet, it will only weaken the magnetic charge on the hard drive "platters" and not completely erase the data.

Hope this helps!

All emails received were gone to trash file, please advise how to fix it?

What email program/service? Many of them have a "Deleted" folder which keeps your deleted emails until you empty the trash and/or a certain amount of time (perhaps two weeks) elapse. Have you looked for such a folder?

Hi i need to restore my Phillips iqor computer to factory settings as i am getting rid if it and don't want to leave my personal information on it

You don't have to go thru all that trouble to get rid of your personal information. First just create a new user account with administrative rights that the person who is getting your computer will use. After you create the new user account reboot the computer and log on with the new account you created. Then Delete your old user account. It will delete all your documents, music, pictures, videos.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts then create the new user account with Administrative Rights (not limited).

Reboot and and log on with the user account you just created.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Account and select the account you want to delete and Delete it. When asked about files to save, you want to delete everything associated with the account you are deleting.

If you have more than one user account you want to delete, do the same thing for it.

Deleting scanned information from all-in-one printers' hard drive

The Canon doesn't have a hard drive, it only stores images until they are printed and only in flash memory. There will be no personal information left on it if you discard, unless you have phone numbers stored in fax memory.

Failed to stop recording problem

I also bought this when it was new. I also paid about $150 for it and also had the exact same problem after a while. It seems that after so many hours some of the features stop working. However, through trial and error, I have discovered that you can still record using DVD-R only. For all the boasts of DVD /-R and DVD /-RW, it does not work after a certain amount of time. Philips does indeed have the worst customer service I have ever seen in any company out there. Contacting them is a nightmare and pure hell. I do hope that no one ever buys any of their products again and I also hope this little bit of info I posted helps someone.
