Reformatting...

Is there anyway to completely wipe out the hard drive before I reformat? Or just load the Windows XP thing and delete the partions thing?

formatting IS wiping out the hard drive. You cannot format a hard drive running your OS from your OS. If you are talking a separate hard drive, you can format it in Windows.

reformatting doesn't completely wipe it out... You might think it does.. but it doesn't.

hard drives arent even completely clean from the factory, you should know that. but that's the cleanest it will ever be. you could try some thermite, but if youre planning on reusing it, then that would be a bad idea

OH So you want to rid all that porn off your computer.

Use Hirens Disc and do a 35x format. Will take a day or two...
