I have been fighting a slow, freezing up computer till I am at the point of starting over. Is it very hard to clear a hard drive and reload with operating software and start over?? I have a Dell E510 running XP. :thumbsup:

All it takes is to press CTRL+F10 at Dell's logo to start recovery process.
Be aware, that all your data will be gone. The computer will be restored to its original state.
