you boot from your CD, it will format the hard disc, and reinstall the operating system
all programs, data, address book, pictures, favourites etc. will be gone
if you explain what the problems are, someone may be able to help you out
There is something wrong with my computer, so I contacted my computer manufacturer and they told me how to do a "clean install" (this is for windows xp home edition, by the way). What does a "clean install" do, and will performing this install erase anything on my hard drive, or will it erase any settings that I have?
