Reformat HD

My D*** is running very slowly and I want to reformat it and reload the op. sys. and progs.
Is it worth 'cleaning'it before reformatting?

Is it worth 'cleaning'it before reformatting? No
refomatting will clean it anyway.

CAn you not reset it to factory settings? Saves reloading the op system and drivers, all you will need to do then is install the updates.

Thanks for your response.

I have the Dell Op.Sys. disc, presumably I just use that to go back to factory settings?

I am not, as you will guessed now, not very techie minded.
