I'm having trouble with my computer so i'm trying to find a way to delete everything off my computer to free space and make my computer run a little faster. I saved all the data i needed on a disk and i want to know how to delete everything without doing it manually. Can u help me?

what OS are you going to install?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

I believe what DaChew is subtly trying to ask is do you have a CD for an operating system with a valid product code. If you wipe the drive you will loose all the information that's on it.

If you want to wipe the drive and have everything that you want to save backed up you will need a utility like Killdisk to wipe the hdd. This is a free utility, download this and transfer this to a CD, place this in you CD-ROM and reboot the computer and follow the instructions, one over writing will be sufficient for your purposes. Now you are ready to do the same procedure with the Windows installation CD.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
