This will remove all personal data.

While that removes all my PII, is there a way to remove the corporate IT policy as well? Its been a real problem for me as I dont want the next owner to be stuck with password and other security policies my corporation enforces.

I read something about loading a blank policy etc. is there an easier way?

Oh, JC... you just gotta burn those jets quicker!

Having a blank IT Policy sent to the BB is the best way.
Here is another:
