I am running Outlook on xp and want to give my PC to a friend, but I do not want to have all of my Outlook data at her disposal [contacts, emails, calendar, tasks, et. al] is there a way to delete completely that data before I give her the PC.  I already "copied" it onto my new computer so I won't need it anymore. Thank You.

Check for the files here

http://www.sitedeveloper.ws/tutorials/outlook.htm

Check them going to this path

C:\Documents and Settings\< user-name> \Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\


Delete all the files..  Be aware that "local settings" folder is hidden

Then uninstall outlook and reinstall outlook
