I'm having some problems with my computer, and i figured i wouldn't mind a fresh start.

There is nothing on my computer i need, just music and games which i can access again via my other computer.

However, having the computer for quite some time now i've found it takes a little longer to do things, load up etc...

Is there an easy way i can just wipe everything of my computer? And not have to install the OS again?

I have Windows Vista Home premium, it was a Vista capable PC and i was sent the free upgrade after applying for it.

Now i would not mind having to wipe EVERYTHING including the OS if i new i would be able to use the same CD's it came with for installation.

I would very much apreciate it if someone could talk me through what i need to do, if what i want done, can be done.

Thanks. :whistling:

You can wipe the machine easily, but it won't be very usable. You really need an OS to make the most of the machine. :whistling:
