of methods to wipe a drive clean. Bootable floppies with FDisk aboard are still available free of charge. The real question is why?

One question perhaps,
by MarkFlax Forum moderator / December 28, 2006 7:24 PM PST

but the possible answers are many.

That's the reason the question "why" was asked.

However, look up "How to create a boot disk", in Google, then "How to uninstall Windows".

You are not un-installing it you are deleting it.

You do not un-install an operating system. It is not like a program.
You delete, you format the disk, you delete the partition is on but you do not un-install it.

If you delete it you do have another operating system to put back in?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
