I did a search on this, but am still a little confused, so just wanted to check and make sure that I'm about to do this reinstallation right.
I got hit with the Internet Security 2010 virus, so need to start fresh.
I have a Reinstallation CD for Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2, a Dell Dimension Resource CD that says "Drivers And Utilities", a documentation CD, and a CD that contains Word Perfect. I probably don't need these last two, right?
My understanding is that I should first run the KillDisk program, then run the Reinstallation CD?
My confusion is the KillDisk thing. Is it absolutely necessary that I run that before doing the Reinstallation CD? It seemed like some people were running KillDisk, and some people weren't.
I just don't want to mess up my computer more than it already is.
Thank you for your help.
