Hi. To state the obvious but often overlooked, first thing you have to do is back up anything you don't want to lose. I did a reinstall recently as I had a scrambled boot record and I used recovery disks. These reverted to the manufacturers default settings including the XP OS. I found this convenient as I didn't have to go through the performance of reauthenticating with MS Hope this helps. Regards Stewart
Hello, I would like to completely empty my hard drive and start all over. My computer has several problems that I cannot seem to fix or have fixed. I was just wondering if I could get some steps just to know where to start? Any help will be appreciated.
