Half of my hard drive is now being taken up by stuff I cannot use. I would like it gone! It is stacked all in one partition...which includes 2...now 3 xp operating systems....2 MS office systems and numerous other junk. Now also somewhere in there is the original operating system for this old computer...I have no idea what it is. I ONLY have a legal XP Pro UPGRADE disc. I do not want to jeopardize my ability to reinstall if it becomes necessary.
Is there a way to somehow either delete all the other junk or compress it so that when I run one of my anti-virus programs or such....it does NOT check these? They are slowing down my NEW installation dramatically. I do not need any of it so I have no concern other than NOT affecting that original operating system.
This is what I have loaded onto the new installation so far:!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
STOP-ANOTHER CRASH WHILE I WAS WRITING THIS-I AM STUCK IN SOME WEIRD VORTEX WHERE THE INTERNET IS WORKING BUT WINDOWS XP IS NOT RESPONDING. Did not catch the stop error codes.
I think I need to somehow clear off this disc of all but this last installation and the original operating system....anyone have any ideas?
REALLY QUICKLY HERE:
