I did a clean install on my XP home computer last year and it went well. The thing is I've forgotten how I did it (doh). I followed step by step instructions and I think from here somewhere,now the computer works well is nice and fast.My friend's computer is about 6 yrs old too and very slow so I've offered to do a clean install for her. I need to find those instructions again though because I followed them step by step and it worked well.I won't be doing it for a week or so because I have other commitments but I want to get organised.
Many thanks for any help.
