I used the program Eraser to wipe my unused disk space, and my comp has been messing up ever since.... I want to do this, but I wasn't given an installation CD w/ the computer. I have reformatted the computer once before by pressing ctrl+f12 while restarting, and after confirmation, it reformatted my entire computer....I don't know if that helps u or not, but I thought I'd mention it...
please, graphics mess up, programs don't work....I would really like to get my computer back on track...

P.S. My system restores were wiped by Eraser as well...

at this point it might be quicker do do the ctrl+f12 method to put your computer back to the system default state...you'd need to back up all your music, data, pictures, etc.. before you do that though..

if you're not wanting to go that route...can you borrow an XP cd of the same type that is installed on your system (i.e. xp pro or xp home...make sure that if your computer came with SP1 instead of SP2 that you get an xp SP1 disk not an sp2 disk) and then run the repair installation

I'll see if I can get one, however, after some googling, i realised that I have a hard copy of the disk in my i386 folder....could I use that?
