i have this asus that is about 2 years old. i want to give it away to my sister in law over seas.
how and what should i do to stay save.
i dont want my emails to go to her as well as some other information.
i am using windows live mail 2011,
all i do on this notebook is check email and bank and credit card starements. some ebay too.
not worried about my sister in law doing anything with the notebook. we want to use skype and majic jack.
i mostly dont want emails going to their because of my pay and stuff.

Vista or Windows 7? What is the complete model number.

It should have a Recovery partition on the hard drive you can access from the Start menu or by using a Fn key (usually F11 or Ctrl+F11) during boot. The users guide will tell you how.

Use it to restore the computer to it's factory new condition and send that.

The first time it's booted up they can go though all the setup and registration stuff.

From what I can find, F9 is the key to start the recovery process.

As I said, The first time it's booted up they can go though all the setup and registration stuff. Then she will be the registered owner.

just wanted to say thanks again. i understand the people help hear and they do this for free just like all the questions i ask are for someone else. nice to make others happy.

this is a great site. really enjoy it.
