Are you certain you're allowed to do that? It could be perceived as destruction of Company property and I'm not sure we can recommend anything to you as it's not owned by you.

 

Sorry,

Hi Bob, give us the specs of your computer and we'll walk you through it.  Are you going to give it away for parts, sell it or up-grade it ... just for us to know.

They are two old computers that My wife was given to use over time. One is so old that if will not run win 10(has not been used in a few years but she has to turn in). The other runs win 10 and crashes all the time or runs so SLOW . Wife used own computer a lot of times. Wife wants to gt any personnel info off . I was going to just reformat but would like to erase every ting for her peace of mind.
