This question is closely linked with my previous question, so it may make more sense to read that first.
I want to remove all the personal data and software files from a friends computer so it can be sold. I do not have the required DVDs and codes to reinstall it, which I would normally do, so I need to remove as much as I can manually.
I will uninstall all the software, but that doesn't always remove all the information associated with the software.
So, where are the most common places for software to store data and personal information on Windows? I'm talking Office, Internet Explorer/Firefox and iTunes type software.
It doesn't have to be particularly secure, just deleting it normally like you would in Windows is secure enough, so I dont need secure formatting tools or military grade sortware removal programs.
