Hi John,

Since you sold the computer to someone else, you might be better off
formatting the hard drive and do a clean install to make sure all your
personal information is off of it. If this is a upgrade version of
Vista, then this tutorial will show you how to do a clean install with
it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
