Can it be done ?
He's properly legal as the PC came with XP Pro installed from brand new,but he has no disc as it's OEM.
I can't help him as i have the disc as my XP Pro was bought from MS,but he is legal and it's all paid for.
He passed WGA and gets ALL the updates.
So is there any way he can do a re-install of XP Pro if he's got an OEM install ?
The reason he needs to re-install is it's been running for a few years now,and even though he cleans it out we all know XP gets clogged up with detritus and when my PC gets like that i just do a Fresh re-install.
We all[my friends] do a fresh install if we want a clean PC and i do it every 6 months or so.
I've tried ton's of reg cleaners and many more besides,but it's not a patch on a fresh install IMO.
So is it good news or bad ?
Is there someway or something he needs to do ?
I can't see why he should pay for a new copy of XP,as his PC came with it pre-installed.
