Is it possible to reload XP-Pro without destoying all my links to programs? I have not reloaded XP in a few years but now this system is getting bogged down. I have loaded alot of software but REALLY dont want to have to reload it after I do the re-install. Is their a way to reconnect these programs after I do re-install if not?

Or do I have the option of a regedit program that will search out old and unused entries?

Or am I just screwed?

I have a copy of "The Complete Reference Windows XP" Levine/Young if that will be of any use.

Thanks guys!!!! You have always come through for me. If there is a way I trust someone here knows how!!!!

(sorry if this the bizzillinth time someone has asked this)

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
