I have a Dell 2350 Dimension with Windows XP Home and I would like to completely
Restore my system to where it only has the programs it came with and wipe the hard drive clean.
I tried to do a system Restore with the Resource CD that came with it and it didn't recognize it. So I tried to manually retore it. It said that I didn't have a restore point.
I have added additonal ram so it does go faster than it did.I have already burnt my pictures to a cd. My games are on disks. My kids use the computer more than I do, but only as a means of accessing the internet.
I tried the Help & Support Tutorial that is downloaded, but I couldn't find anything that would help. I admit I am not very computer suavy.
I do have all the latest microsoft updates as of Tuesday, July 11th. I don't want to save them, I can download them again, no problem. I'm scrared if I try to do back ups on anything I will get confused.
The following are the CD's that came with the computer when I bought it:
1 - Tools System Software
1 - Roxio Easy CD Creator5.3.4 SP8 Basic
1 - Drivers/Utilities - for Reinstalling V.92 56K Telephony Data/Fax Modem
1 - Drivers/Utilities -Resource CD
1 - Windows XP Home Edition (including Service Pack 1)
Also would like to know which of the downloads noted below; I need and DO NOT need. I currently have all.
Norton Anti Virus 2006
AdAware SE Personal
I know this is asking alot and I have looked through other pages on here to find what I need. But I must be missing something. I've read a lot of your forums and I like this site because you have given instructions that are easy to understand and interpret.
Thanks for your help and for making this site available.
