Try telling us what the problems are and maybe we can help??

If you really want to reinstall XP. Put the CD in the drive reboot and go into the BIOS. Make the CD Drive the first Bootable drive and then save changes and exit. PC will then boot from the CD and you then follow instructions.

i cant install window updates or uninstall some progs.

the bar fills with grey as it starts to uninstall, but then just stops.

i have only had comp a month and i had no prob installing updates then.

went to do system restore, but that just came up prog not responding.
