Its not painful. But you have to have all the Programme discs / cd's to hand before you think of reformatting the hard drive and reloading an Operating System and other software.

Do you have the operating system disk? My old pc only had a restore disk so i had to use that to wipe everything. Make sure you have it before you do anything with boot disks and such.
