    1. So no profiles then? What about licensed programs? It's not just about Data Protection.. (not sure if anything of value could come from profiles but I prefer to be safe than sorry)
    2. Oh the old honesty approach...
    3. Then don't give them away...

    If we give away old laptops (and to be honest, once they get to the point we can't use them, they are only fit to be door stops) I install Ubunto on them. Minimal work involved, and no licencing issues to come back to the school.

    We just use the 'boot nd nuke' copy of Eraser to frag our PCs hard drives - it takes 2mins of my time to boot and type 'autonuke' and then ~30-60mins to deep fry the data on the hard drive.

    Flatten the laptop and do a fresh install, but like others have said use a OEM windows install disk and use the serial sticker when asked.
    If it wont work you have to use the automated system to allow reactivation, its just 3 mins to do and not as painfull as it appears.

    I have done this numerious times and cant remember it ever failing.

    I wouldnt mess around removing whats on it due to data preotection and licencing issues.

    Once its done you can image it yourself to create your own restore disk.
