Firstly please accept my apologies in advance if this is a stupid question.
I want to sell my laptop, which is running on Windows 7 Home version. I would like to wipe the hard drive before I sell it, but am worried if I do that it will wipe the Windows 7 too. If this is the case, I never received a CD Rom with the laptop with anything to re-install it - is there some other way of re-installing it or would I need to purchase it (Windows) again?
In a nutshell I basically want to wipe any personal information that may be on there securely, but leave windows on there if possible. I'm happy to pay for any software needed to wipe it, but just want some advice before I do.
Many thanks in advance for any help you can give.
