You will have to re-install all updates and if the dell restore disk does not have SP2 that will have to be re-installed as well.
Right click My Computer, and properties to see what SP is installed.
Since we are in a post SP2 world, I find myself with the need to format my Dell Dimension computer bc it is running really slow. I was to format the computer and use the provided restore cd from dell to re-install my applications and most importantly Win.XP. If I was to format and re-install how do I make sure that all of the security patches that Win. has released are back on my machine. My est. of the # of updates I did since I got the computer is in the ballpark of about 25-30. After the format will I have to go through each update and install all of them???
Any tips as to formating with SP2?
Any help greatly appreciated.
