Question about Computers & Internet
It is very old and slow so I want to clear out the hard drive but keep XP on it. Also any other wipe out hard drive ideas would be great.
Uninstall all the unwanted softwares
using the add/remove programmes.....
if you are suspicious about any viruses being there i would suggest you to download and install 'Avast 8'
and run a boot time scan.this will clear all the viruses in your computer for sure then use "tune up utilities"
to detect the unused registery entries and delete them (it has a one click miantainance)
you can get both the softwares for free( only trial) from www.download.com
i am tellling all this considering you do not want to part with the CURRENT windows xp or do not have a Windows onstallation disc
if you have any other questions please do post back
