Here is the thing, before getting this laptop, I had a HP computer where they included a restore disc that allowed reformatting back to factory settings and wiping clean the hard drive. But this new cl56 I have is different. I tried reinstallng Windows, and did, but I found I still had old files on my computer. I downloaded a virus program and it found a ton. So, I figured I'd delete the viruses, which I did, then reinstall windows, but the viruses popped up again. And I hadn't yet gone on the net. Is there any way I can wipe clean this hard drive and start over. For some reason I can't lose old files, even when I choose to install windows over other windows. What gives?
