    Hi deaditefamily,

    I don't know what personal information you have on your computer, but sometimes it might be best to completely wipe the drive clean, then reload the OS. You should be able to accomplish this pretty easily. Have a look HERE.

    If that sounds like more than you want to do, then perhaps using a third party disk cleaning program might help. Ccleaner even has a drive wiper built in. With this method, you can select which files / folders that you want to have completely removed (IE: Written over), or the entire disc.

    As to your actual question, take a look at the the below link and see if there's anything there.
