Hi. I've never reinstalled (or installed, for that matter) Windows XP before, but my computer has been experiencing some slowdown and I imagine it has something to do with a build up of clutter over the last few years. Anyways, as this is my first time installing windows I'm doing a lot of research before going through with it. My plan would be to do a fresh install of Windows XP just as if my computer had just come out of the shop, and from there install only the few programs I need. So that was my plan, and I was satisfied with it - so I began to look for any install disks I will need and determine which programs I will need to download etc etc. That's when it hit me - I paid for my copy of "Diskeeper" a defragmenting tool, and I'm worried that when I reinstall Windows I will lose this application. So I went to the Diskeeper website and tried to see if I had an account or something from which I could input a username and password and then download Diskeeper but I couldn't find anything of the sort. So I guess what I'm asking is how should I deal with this? If I burn it to a CD-RW will that work? Does anyone know if Diskeeper requires a CD-Key of some sort? If I do need to put Diskeeper onto a seperate CD does that mean I need to mess with .ISO files or should it be a clean and easy process, with this in mind - what program should I use to copy Diskeeper over?
Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
