As the title suggest, I'm having a little difficulty. I have a relative who used the computer for fairly basic things like watching youtube and searching online. He had a habit of clicking and downloading things he didn't realize were dangerous and the computer is pretty bogged down with malware and viruses. My thought was to wipe the harddrive and install Chromium as I thought this would be a fairly lite install and my understanding is that it may be better suited to protect him from viruses due to the inability to run executable files.
The computer is a Gateway desktop that was running Windows 7 (I believe).
As my username suggests, I'm a little out of my game here. I tried to use DBAN to wipe and it "finished" with non-fatal errors. I repeated twice more and same results. I then thought, well let me try to install Chromium off of my flash drive now. I thought I followed the steps but it is telling me that it "can not determine the destination drive" and asks me to specify.
I have no clue what is wrong and what to do.
1. Did DBAN not actually wipe my hard drive?
2. Did I need to partition my hard drive after DBAN? If so, how do I do that?
3. What am I missing with Chromium and the refusal to install? How do I specify the hard drive?
Thanks in advance everyone, happy to provide any additional information to help garner a response. I may need some handholding on how to obtain such information though!
