Hi all,

I'm running Windows XP on my 1.8GHZ PC... I've got so much mess on there, and basically want to start from fresh and get everything deleted, I guess this is called a reboot or something?

How do I go about doing this?

Any help appreciated! :thumbsup:

If you don't have the cd, don't do anything yet. With out the CD and the product key you will not be able to reinstall. What brand of computer do you have.
You will be able to reinstall Xp it will be determing how to do it.
Would you like you give us a chance to help you fix your computer without such a extreme approach?

Do you have a "restore" cd provided by the computer manufacturer?
