Reformatting my PC

  millomite 15:10 03 Feb 2004

I was wondering if any of you guys out there can advise me n how to do this. I dont have a copy of xp on disk, but have downloaded the boot things from microsofts website to put on floppy.

If you dont have a copy of the operating system on cd, do not even contemplate formatting your HD. How are you going to reinstall without a copy?

i have no idea. im am not echnically minded but my computer is seriously slow

Only reformat your hard drive if you are prepared to go out and buy a new copy of Windows XP! The slowness of your computer could be the result of a Microsoft patch click here

could i not download a copy off kazaa

don't think about using kazzaa. its full of Trojans and virus'. and you will be in breach of copyright laws. if you can give a more detailed answer as to what is wrong there are a lot of very helpful and knowledgeable people who will be able to help without doing a fresh install.
