    Ok i am new to webos and i just bought a hp touchpad. I want to restore it so its like i just got it out of the box and i have to go through a setup process. Will a full erase or secure erase do this and what is the difference between full erase and secure full erase?

    If you want to restore the OS to it's pristine state you have to run the webOS Doctor, but I think that all that a Secure Full Erase would do, compared to a Full Erase, is make the original data harder to access.

    Yes. That's what you want. During the reboot you will go through the account creation/login process.

    I just bought a used tpad on eBay.
    It still had the guys webos account attached. I did a full secure wipe and was able to setup a new webos account as part of the setup process.
