Question about Computers & Internet
Procedure of Reformatting, will loose all your information. I suggest you back up everything.
You will need your Disc that came with Computer.
Insert the Disc and start. When you reformat your computer, you will find your product key code located on your computer. It is a sticker and it is labeled " product key code". It has alot of numbers on it.
Always look for a Certificate of Authenticity (COA). A COA is a label that helps you identify genuine Microsoft software. A COA is not a software license – it is a visual identifier that assists in determining whether or not the Microsoft software you are running is genuine. However, without it, you will not have a legal license to run Microsoft software. A COA should never be purchased by itself without the software it authenticates.
If you do not have one, then I suggest your Purchase one.
FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. .
Running Spybot Search & Destroy and Defender, with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE

There are alot of $ anti-virus and Internet security programs out there,
ie: Norton, McAfee, Panda, Bitdefender. If you would like to pay $ then get Kaspersky-- 2009-2010 , I feel that is the best for your money.
REMEMBER TO KEEP UP THE DAILY MAINTENANCE ON ALL OF YOUR COMPUTERS.!
Hope this helps. Good Luck :0)
