My Friends computer is stuffed and tomorrow i'm going to reformate his hard drive.

Is this a good idea? (SEE BELOW)


I'm install win98 on his computer.
Go to the hard drive and burn all of this doc's on cd then put the recorvery cd in and reformat!

I think it is a good idea. tell be what you think! Is it the best way?

If you are sure you have the recovery discs and you know how to use them, then it's certainly a sure way of getting rid of all the rubbish on a PC and starting again with a clean and lean healthy one.

Certainly installing Win 98 is no big deal, but just make sure your friend has all his favourite applications on CD somewhere first, so he can re-install them when Windows is back up and running.

Oh, and by the way, this forum is for Windows XP problems, not Windows 98!
