A question for anyone who may be able to help me: I'm running Windows ME on one of my computers which is infected with spyware and among other things is terribly slow. [Windows ME's fault....grr] I need to reformat the hard drive, I know, but what should I do besides the usual copying of data/programs? How can I be sure that once it's reformatted it will accept the disc to reinstall the OS? How do I go about ensuring that it will be able to read the disc once everything is wiped clean? I would like to have XP but don't want to spend the near $200 or else I would. XP is fabulous...but I need a quick fix solution in the meantime. Thank you very much!!!
