Hello Dave spencer
, and welcome to BC.
This is not difficult. First do you have the 25 digit code that accompanies the ME CD? Why are you not going with 98SE. It is considered by most to be superior to ME. With that said you can go to BootDisk.com
and download the ME boot disk.
Once you have booted from the disk type in FORMAT C:\
. You will receive a warning screen. Answer YES
when it asks if you are sure.
When the FORMAT is complete you can install windows.
If you suspect a virus may still be o your drive download Active@KillDisk
and wipe your drive. These will destroy all data (and virus') prior to FORMATing.
