Manually restoring a Win 98 machine
Posted on 2003-11-11
I've been tasked with the job of clearing/cleaning a friends Win 98 machine and manually restoring it so that it can be handed to a new user.
The procedure I'll be going through is as follows:
1 - Use Internet Explorer properties to delete Temp Files, Cookies and History.
2 - Manually delete any remaining Temp Internet Files and Cookies folder.
3 - Search hard drives for "Temp" and clear the contents of all the folders that appear.
4 - Move over to a new machine all files in:
> My Documents
> My Music, etc.
Is there anything else I need to do to ensure a completely clean machine?
