In order to delete all your personal files and folders from your computer and restore it back to its' original state, you will need to re-install the operating system You can go about doing this by placing the re-installation disk or cd that came along with your computer when you first purchased it into your cd-rom or disk drive Reboot your computer with the cd or disk inside and the software will autorun to lead you through the re-installation process Follow the instructions on the monitor to complete the re-installation and all should be well You can donate your computer to any local school or computer store, I'm sure they'll be more than happy to take it off your arms Good Luck!!
