Hi i was given an old pc today and its full of crap pardon the french i was just wondering what was the best course of action to take full format or what, i dont have any disk though.

you're answering your own question - you can't format the drive.

Clear out the rubbish, defragment the drive, and see what effect it has.

YOu will find Win Millenium (ME) is fine when you're used to it - and when you've cleared out all the junk.
I have a desktop running ME and a laptop running XP. In my experience both are equally good.

Goin to give it to my nephew for msn messanger but when i try to install the newer version it say i need ie 6 but each time i try to install ie6 i get a message saying you need to restart pc to complete setup, which is fine but when i do this ie6 has still not been installed, also how do i put the blue ie icon on my desktop, i dont really know anything about this version of windows.

Try deleting ie5 first and all references to it in the registry, use a good reg cleaner to do this.

I had win me on my last computer, only thing was that it hogs memory and does not like to give it back without a re-boot.

Can you recommend a good reg cleaner, i'm not really comfortable deleting ie as my bb has been installed.
