Hi there, I have just backed up some of my data to a cd-r. Is there anything important that may need backing up, such as microsoft office etc? I currently backed up AOL 7.0, Nero, Winzip 7 etc. I have a Microsoft 98Se disk (which i presume is the setup disk?) and i have microsoft Office 2000 (i think word,excel etc is in this disk? Now before i format my pc (for the first time in over 3 years) and (the first time i have ever formatted a pc) is there anything i should be aware of?
Yes it does do the card games and media centre - but just the original versions that come with it. Also bear in mind that you will need to load down any Windows updates that you want, after the re-install. This is best done before you do anything else.
Also, don't put in your AV program until you've finished everything - it tends to interfere with other installations - and don't forget to update it as soon as you've installed it.
