I installed WindowsXP like three times, or er...more, because I thought I wasn't doing a clean install right. But everytime that I did install WindowsXP I deleted all existing partitions and installed XP.

Okay, so here's my question. When I analyzed for a defragment, it says I have about 11,000 files on my computer. Is that how many files XP installed? Or are files from Windows98 still on my computer?

It shows many results about having files, but it has one:

Total files: xx,xxx

That's how many files you have on your computer - I think like 85% it can be that, it exclude some stuff :thumbsup:

If you deleted all existing partitions then that wipes your drive, so there will be no 98 leftovers.
