Specs: XP HOME
i am planning on selling or donating my old xp computer but first i would like to wipe clean the hard drive. ive heard many files remain even after running the restore disk. can you recommend a good program to do this. also, i know i wont get a whole lot for the comp, i figure its worth $100 to $200. would it be better to donate it and take a tax write off? thanks for any help.

if you take "it and take a tax write off" via the schedule A, that just basically means you are reducing you taxable income by $200. How much is that going to change (lower) your tax?? Depends on what the rest of you income is. It may lower your tax very little. I would still donate it, unless money is tight.
