I have widows 98 and at present i have varios adware viruses that cant be removed and lots of other junk on HD. without trying to sound stupid but doing it naturally, how do i wipe / format the Hard drive and are there any difficulties with re-installation, ie how do i do it?!
Formatting your HD is a drastic measure if all your data is lost, I know I lost mine before I could save anything. If you want to get rid of all spyware etc download this click here run it and post the results at this forum click here don't forget to register first. They specialise in the removal of spyware etc., HTH TR
A full reformat will clear any other junk you've accumulated though, and should clear any system instabilities. If you do reformat don't forget emails, favourites, documents, and savedgames etc. need to be backed up.
Windows Media Player 9 should play AVI files I think. Some DVD playback doftware also plays AVI's if you have any. click here (I think is the site) have a free player to play MPEGs, it might do AVI too.
