Not entirely HCPC related but I figured this was the best forum for it so here goes... I'm half considering deleting everything on my laptop and starting from scratch - I don't intend to change OS or anything, simply remove all of the crap, and just start again with XP + Office - am I stupid for wanting to do such a thing??!! I currently have a load of software on my machine that I very rarely use, and despite uninstalling a lot of it, I'm left with some stuff that I don't know if I need or not, and everything just seems to be a bit of a mess On top of that, I keep remembering how fast the thing used to be and I want it back!! Having never attempted anything like this before - is it a bad idea? Is XP easy to re-install? Will I have to reinstall the BIOS, the hardware, and everything else?? Is that easy? Apologies if I sound like a total muppet - I'd never consider myself to be "scared" of computers, but I haven't done anything bigger than installing/removing programmes before. Any hints/tips/advice greatly received!! K.
