How to completely erase everything without a secondary key


Wipe it really clean? Like erase Windows and everything?

Do you have the original disks that came with the computer? If you boot from a Windows installation disk, then you can reformat (wipe) the disk before you install. That's a nice clean install. If you want to go a step further, you could repartition the drive with fdisk, then format it.

If you're looking to keep windows, but erase all the programs and files, that's more tedious. Open Control Panel, go to Programs & Features. You'll see a list of installed programs. You can double-click on a program to uninstall it.

To get rid of files, I would suggest creating a new User account for yourself, give yourself Administrator permissions, and then delete your friends account. Then you can look in the Users folder, and if you see your friend's account on a folder, delete it.

How to wipe iPhone cleanly


"Erase all content" means all of YOUR content, including all applications you have downloaded and all the data for those applications and all the data for Apple applications (i.e. Mail, Photos, Calendar, Safari, etc.) will not be completely removed from the device, they still remain on your iPhone and can be easily recovered by some iPhone data recovery.

I highly recommend you to try Safewiper iPhone data eraser app to complete your iPhone data, it will be the best choice when you need to sell your old iPhone or iPad.

My phone has had to many pattern attempts and i cant rember the google password or username how can i reset my phone ?


Performing a Normal (Soft) Reset on a LG Optimus GT540 A normal reset is sometimes referred to as a soft reset. A normal reset stops all running applications but does not erase any programs or saved data.

Caution be sure to save any unsaved data before performing a normal reset since a normal reset erases all unsaved data.

To perform a soft reset:

  1. Press lg_optimus_hard_reset1.jpg > lg_optimus_soft_reset.jpg > Settings > Privacy > Factory data reset.
  2. If you are certain that you would like to restore all factory settings, tap Reset phone.
Performing a Hard Reset on a LG Optimus GT540 A full reset is sometimes referred to as a hard reset. Perform a full reset when you want to clear all settings, programs and data from RAM.

Caution if you perform a full reset, your LG Smartphone returns to its default settings and looses all information that is not recorded in ROM.

(CAUTION! If you perform a factory (full) reset, all user applications and user data will be deleted. Please remember to back up any important data before performing a factory reset.)

To perform a factory (hard) reset:

  1. Turn the power off.
  2. Press and hold the following keys for over 5 seconds: Down volume key + lg_optimus_hard_reset1.jpg + lg_optimus_hard_reset2.jpg .
  3. When the power turns on, release these keys.

Son left home for a job left his PC behind was going to give to younger child has system password (that Older son forgot)


If he set a password in the BIOS, this can easily be solved by unplugging the computer from the wall, opening it up, and removing the CMOS battery (a flat, lithium "button cell" battery on the main system board inside), for 30 seconds before putting it back.

If this is a Windows password we're talking about, it may be tricky getting inside. Since you're giving it to someone else, why not locate the Windows Recovery Disks, and boot the computer up with them in the driver, re-install windows? Might be safer in the long run, as it will erase everything, and give the child a computer with a clean slate. Unfortunatly, if this is done- then everything your son saved on the computer will be erased clean, and be unrecoverable.

Screen shows at quick start that pri prog was not closed correctly.Can import vidio but will not play back or make disc


There is a corrupt file that was partially imported.

You need to flush the program cache.

Go to System Restore Point and see if you can go back to the day before this problem happened.

Now, on a separate disk backup any data you have saved just before this install point.

Restore to the old desktop state. This often solves the problem but will potentially erase all data up to that date.

Everything got erased


Sounds like you may need a data recovery company to try and get it back for you. Doing this is not cheap, it can cost a lot of money, so you best get a quote first before you decide. The cost of recovery may not be worth the data you want back. At any rate, I found one company in a search for you...
