    Default how to restore to factory defaults
    Hi all from South Australia. I've just bought a 4 month old iMac 21.5 500GB. Having only spent a couple of hours with it I see lots of empty folders from the previous owner. Also his name etc in various accounts - all new to me at this stage. I have the original set up disc and iLife and want to know how do I go about restoring EVERYTHING to factory default and start again from scratch, and in doing so this will delete ALL previous folders/accounts/rubbish from previous owner. Just like setting up a brand new one. Please use non geek words thanks.
