If you have a burner, try to save all you can on CD-r's , DVD=r's, Zip Drives and run Belarc Adviser, print it out [http://www.majorgeeks.com/download1385.html]
What you should have done was format it and that everything you have will be deleted, make sure you have your registration key handy. I have no idea how much you have installed, but you will need any other drivers for video, sound, etc. that WINXP won't provide either.
Put in your WINXP Home CD, select format since you have doubles of everything, it will be erased and installed as fresh Windiows XP Home Edition only and only a recycle bin on the desktop. Now you have to reinstall your other non-windows applications. You could have saved a lot of time by fixing IE first, but the damage has been done. Darrell Lewis
I had Windows XP home edition installed on my computer. I had to reload it, because internet explorer got messed up and I couldn't surf the internet. Now I'm using the new one and my computer has slowed down significantly, so I want to delete the old one to free my hard drive space and speed up my computer. I just want to know what folders or otehr things I should remove from my computer to do this. Thanks in advance for any help.
