My Old Laptop has a cracked screen.. I can't it to delete Spy Hunter 4 and all the other annoying programs I downloaded trying to fix it... I can barely get it to do anything properly.. I don't even think I can sell it with the shape it is in...?

It depends...  Someone might buy it if the price is right taking into consideration he has to replace the screen and clean up all those programs.  The most important thing for you, as the seller, is to completely remove whatever personal data of yours is on the computer to protect yourself.

If you decide to just give up on it you should close your virus topic posted

That topic was moved to Anti-Virus, Anti-Malware, and Privacy Software.

I was going to suggest DBAN, however dc3 elsewhere mentioned something probably better:  active@KillDisk, KillDiskSuite.

I was just using that was just an example because you began saying how beat up it is and that it overheats.  So let's get serious.  What do you really want us to tell you?
