Simple, It wouldn't keep any old Windows 95, 98, ME or NT installation floppy disk unless you need them for old device drivers that you still use. I would still keep Windows 2000 or XP installation CD thats for sure.

Can I use a Sony Vaio windows 7 upgrade disc for a toshiba vista laptop?


Probably not. If it is specifically for Sony. Otherwise you can purchase a disc from Fleabay quite cheaply.

Download the SP3 installation ISO. Save it to your Desktop. Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop. Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next." Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn. Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive. Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn." Click "File," then "Browse for a source file." Navigate to your Desktop and select the SP3 ISO file. Click "Open." Click the blue "ISO to CD" button located on the bottom left of ImgBurn. The program will begin creating the Windows XP SP3 installation CD. This process may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the speed at which the CD-R/DVD-R is being burned. Click "OK" once the CD-R/DVD-R has finished burning. You've successfully created a Windows XP SP3 installation CD.

What's your problem? Virus Help


That particular virus infection is a SERIOUS pain in the ****. Save yourself a major headache and bring it to a computer shop that specializes in virus/malware removal for a set price of $50 - $100. I've personally removed that virus from several computers and it's very tricky, and great at morphing and hiding code in several places. Not to mention the fact that it will eventually delete all your icons on the desktop and start menu.

Hi:
Basically, you need to do four steps:
1) Run the Windows OS installation
2) Install all drivers off of the driver CD
3)Install programs and software that came with the computer, or ones that you added .
4) Connect to the internet, and validate your copy of windows, and run Windows Update again and again, until there are no more updates to download.
