I am involved with a small band of new user older generation silver surfers.A question that keeps cropping up, is the re-installation of the various operating systems, mainly ME and XP Home with a little 98se.
They want to know [in printed form]what will or could happen if they inserted their operating disk in their computer.Would this re-install, reformat or destroy their system. This question came to light recently, due to the fact that a couple of people are having boot-up, crash or similar problems and they want to try some of the technical stuff themselves. Using the advantage of this forum may ease their concern a little.
A warning as to what can go wrong or perhaps best be avoided, would be appreciated.
