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.

I want to clear my hard drive, because I'm giving my computer to someone


You don't really want to clear your hard drive unless the person you are giving it to has an operating system to reload, otherwise the computer is useless to them. What you really want to do is get rid of all of your documents, music, pictures and videos. Here's what you should do. 1) Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts and select the option to create a new account. Give the new account the name of the person you are giving the laptop to with administrative rights (not a limited account) or give in a generic name such as Owner or User. 2) Once you've created the new account do a restart of your computer and when it comes up log in to the New Account that you created. 3) Now click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts once again, but this time select your old account, then look for the option to Delete User Account. 4) Delete your old user account and delete all associated files when asked. It will take a few minutes but when finished all of your documents, music, pictures and videos will be long gone and your user account will be gone also. Now when you give the computer to the new owner it will be operational and he can start using it.

I own the PS3 and my stepson created a master account now I cant do anything with it. How do I delete and create a new one?


Deleting a master account is simple, just be logged in as that account, highlight that user in the Users list, hit triangle and select "delete". After confirming that user will no longer be on your PS3 (this will also wipe your sub account, most likely).


Now, make a new master user in the Users list with the name you want and go to the "sign up for the PlayStation network" logo in the PlayStation network section. When going through the process select "master account" and enter the log in details. You most likely will have to use a new e-mail address as I do not believe you can upgrade a sub account to a master.

I want to know how to delete a standerd user account?


I you are using Windows, click "Start" then "Control Panel" then "User Accounts," then "Change an Account." Choose the account you wish to delete, then click "Delete Account" it will ask you if you want to keep the account's files, say yes only if you had something important on that account. NOTE:you can only delete accounts if you are a administrator.
If you are using a Mac, click "System Preferences" then "Accounts" then select the account you wish to delete and click the little minus sign at the bottom. NOTE: Like Windows, you can only delete accounts if you are an administrator.

Same account user appears when i try to create a new account.i am trying to log in with a new password and user id. i have tried to get e'mail validation for a few hours now


no OS mentioned but this should work. Got into Control Panel/User Accounts and delete[yes Delete] all presently identified accounts. reboot. now go into User Account and do a new one.

Also, you did not mention if you are sole Administrator--ensure you have the privileges and are not a sub-account user with limited privileges.
