Not really sure what you're asking... In what context are you considering a re-format? A little background info?

Perhaps it would be better to start with a cleanup click here, a defragmentation and a malware scan click here. Then consider a re-installation and reformat if things haven't improved much.

Before reformatting, be sure you have all relevant drivers etc and back up data - emails, address books, documents etc.
