I'm selling a relatively new laptop on Ebay as I have been given a one from work and I'd rather sell mine now than in a years time when it is outdated and relatively worthless.
Anyway, I am in the process of backing up my personal stuff before I clean down the laptop. I also have a few engineering analysis and design programs on which I need to remove for licensing reasons (please note, these are legitimate to me through work, no funny business!), although I do intend to leave on Office pro as it will enhance the sale price. This was purchased at the time of buying the laptop.
Is there anything in particular I need to do to make sure the HDD is reasonably cleaned down and all programs are removed?
I do not wish to do a clean install or at least not like XP used to be if I can't keep Office pro without re setting it up.
Laptop is a DEll XPS i7 running W7 if that matters.
Cheers in advance.
