Hey guys, your help and expertise will be greatly appreciated... I'm desperately in need of assistance here... Recently my comp is totally wrecked up, programs doesn't run like they ought to and startup is a total havoc. My comp is also stuffed with alot of useless info and programs and I think it is in serious need of reformatting. However I'm a total comp ***** in this and will need your CLEAR and CONCISE step-by-step explaination... sigh This guy set up my comp for me bout 2 years ago and when he installed WinXP Pro, i kinda remebered he ****ed up something regarding partitions. Think he made another partition and thus my comp has been running on 2 partitions but actually only in fact i'm utilising one... cuz its showed i only have 1 harddrive (c So right now, i'm pondering how to totally delete EVERYHING from my comp... is tat reformat of harddrives? I wanna wipe everything out from my comp, like its totally cleaned and then starting from scratch, reinstall my WinXP Pro again... how can i do that? And also considering my problem about partitions mentioned above, I would wanna merge them together and fully utilise the 2 partitions as 1 after i reformat. How can i do that? I really have no idea at all... I've tried searching for similar topics but learned little from those replied suggestions.
