hi, my daughters PC is playing up,it is running win98se, I have the evesham restore disk, but i think there was another disk which i can not find, so i do not want to try and reformat the thing, the disk i have has 4 options,one of them is "quick restore no format"it will install a new OS while keeping all your data, now for the question, about time i hear you cry, it states all windows applications and settings will be lost, your old windows will be backed up..what is a example of a windows application ? and what will she lose ?

If you use the option you mention you will at best be back to the way it was when bought. Any thing you added or tweaked since will disappear.

At worst the whole thing will become unusable (you mentioned a missing second CD?)

Better if you can detail what is "playing up" with the present arrangement, in the hope that correcting that will be a lot less traumatic!
