I have some files that are clogging up the hard drive, viruses, spyware, you name it.
I want to reset my computer, i have the XP disk for it,
I thought i did it before, but what i did was just create another thing.. No sure what the name for it is (a partition?) so that when i start the computer up i need to select one from a black screen,both say microsoft windows XP
I dont want to have to select one, i just want my c drive wiped and back to the way it would be if i restarted the whole computer..
When i put the disk in i get a blue screen, asking me what i want to do. I have the option of deleting partitions, but im not sure if its wise..
I cant simply select "restore to factory defaults" because that only worked when i had vista installed on it, (acer 9300)
How do i get my computer back to being naked?
I have all the files i want to keep in my D drive
