    Hello...

    I bought this hp from a stupid person and it was messed up with garbage - I have cleaned it to an acceptable level but is there info on how far to go? Also, how do I get rid of the previous owner's name (ex) so I don't get reminded all the time?

    Thanks in advance...w

    You can change the name by going into Control Panel > System Properties > Computer Name and click on change.

    If really want to clean it completely you could reformat the harddrive and reinstall windows. If not just make sure you do several virus and spyware scans.
