What OS are you using?

In the OLDEN days this was a good idea, but not necessarily any more....

Before you do anything, you must create recovery disks, if you do not have them, and create user backup, especially focusing on accounting files....

Then you insert Windows disk and perform fresh install, this wipes everything, still this is not needed as often as people seem to think...

If you have the windows instalation cd then your in luck if not then your going to have to go out and buy them, once you have the cd boot off the cd and follow the instructions, you'll want to to do a clean install and that means that your going to have to use the format option after that just let the cd do its job and note this will take a while depending on your system and how big your hard drive is

How can I clear all the saved game data so I can start all over?


On your OS there will be a file with a name similar to the game. This will most likely need to be either deleted or uninstalled as well as fully uninstalling the game and reinstalling it

How do I clear all old data?


Go to settings > Options > Security Options > General Settings. Once in there, click on the menu key and select "wipe handheld". This will remove all information from the device and disable the wireless.

When you start it up again you will have to go through the setup wizard just as if you had powered it on for the first time.

BIG BOOT PROBLEM!!!!


You should have erased the system root directory,( the Windows XP installed drive). the boot sector still has the winxp boot information, but does not finds any file on the drive, were they are supposed to be.

You have to Install a fresh copy of winxp, with the winxp boot cd.

Slow moving computer


Yes, If you have no problem losing your data. If you care about your data I would install a good antivirus program if you are not using one . If you are using one make sure it is updated and perform a full system scan. Also if you have the newst version of Internet Explorer clear out your temporary internet files & cookies.
