According to me this is the safe method to format your pc or uninstall XP. 1> Backup all the neccessary files to some cd. 2> If you format your primary hard drive(the drive on which xp is installed) it will not affect other drives. the data in it will remain intact. 3>Or if you have to format your other drives then, delete all the files of other drives(the drive on which xp is not installed). 4> Try to delete as much files of your primary hard drive. 5> so at the time of format your 35 to 50 mb of hard disk gets formatted, which will definately increase your hard disk life. Now continue with format steps: 1>Reboot your pc and press F8 or F5 (depends on the motherboard) you will get and option windows..... 1)Start windows normally 2)Safe mode . . . Like this.... from this select In this c:/>format d:(drive on which xp is not installed) then c:/> format C; Your pc will be formatted. All the best.

You can remove service pack 2 from within add/remove programmes, you will not lose any documents, but you will lose the udated security patches which is not recommended. If you mean you wish to remove XP SP completely, obviously the files and everything you have installed on c drive will be deleted as you can only save docs etc within an operating system, as c: is just a partition on your hard drive the files reside within the operating system. If you are upgrading to another operating system my advice would be to use a dual boot system and install the other operating system on a seperate partition of your drive, but you would have to have a fair knowledge of pc operating system installation processes.

I am trying to uninstall webroot spysweeper with antivirus but cant find it to remove it, what should i do?

Under normal circumstances, like any other Anti-Malware software, Webroot will protect itself. You cannot randomly shut down its service. You cannot use most external uninstallers.

Always try to uninstall it using Add & Remove Programs first (on XP) or Programs and Features (In Vista and 7), or the uninstall link in All Programs on your start menu.

If you are not able to find it in any of these places, get the official cleanup utility from Webroot directly at:

This utility is made to cleanly shut down and clean up Webroot SpySweeper, Antivirus, and Internet Security Essentials and will even remove itself when it's done.

How Do I Remove My Web Search?

hi Crazzymandy,

Thanks for your posting in FixYa.

Please do the following:

First, uninstall the My Web Search option from Add/Remove Programs
1) Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel
2) Double click on Add/Remove Programs
3) Find "My Web Search" in the list of installed programs and click on Change/Remove to uninstall it. You may also want to uninstall any of the following items associated with FunWebProducts.
· My Web Search (Smiley Central or FWP product as applicable)
· My Way Speedbar (Smiley Central or other FWP as applicable)
· My Way Speedbar (AOL and Yahoo Messengers) (beta users only)
· My Way Speedbar (Outlook, Outlook Express, and IncrediMail)
· Search Assistant - My Way
4) Reboot your Computer and run HijackThis
5) With HijackThis, scan for and fix any of the entries shown above that may be remaining.
6) Next, open My Computer, Drive C, and double-click on the Program Files folder
7) Right-click and delete the folders for:
· FunWebProducts
· MyWebSearch
8) MyWebSearch should now be completely uninstalled from your computer.
9) There will be some minor registry entries left behind by the uninstall, however these can be cleaned up by running SpyBot Search and Destroy or Ad-Aware SE or left alone.

If unable to remove from control panel, then try to remove them after rebooting PC in Safe mode..

Hope this would help you a lot.

Dont forget to rank me up.

Have a nice day.

Best of Luck & Regards

Could not install windows xp service pack2

You need sata driver for your hdd. to install Xp you need usb floppy as well. (i.e.) for drivers for sata during xp installation.


Audio driver installation failed from mother board cd

The most common solution was this: open device manager click "system devices" disable "microsoft UAA bus driver for high definition audio" uninstall "UAA bus driver" make rescan devices (Note: Not all had this step. You may want to skip it.) D.W. install realtek driver the realtek driver includes the UAA driver too.Hope this helps.

Motorola Phone Tools

Try connecting the phone via USB with the power off & once connected, power on phone. Thanks.
