I am running Vista on a Gateway 1628 Laptop. Lately it has slowed down and begun freezing due to poor internet surfing. I want to 'wipe' it clean- just get rid of everything and start over with a clean slate. I have Microsoft Office installed and wish to retain it. So my question is in two parts:
1. How do I 'wipe' my computer clean?
2. How do I wipe it clean while retaining Microsoft Office?
