Hello everyone,
I'm new to this forum and I think it's great.

Can I re-install Windows XP pro without losing everything on my computer ?

Thank you,
johanneb

well as far as i know no
you should be able to backup most of the programs that you want saved on to cd's and dvd's before you reformat the drive

What is the problem. Windows? Virus? Spyware?

I want to re-install because Windows XP is unstable.
Well I guess I have no choice.
Thank you RogueComGeek.

you can do a backup run on your machine, and store it on either CDROM or a diskshare on either another partion on your local drive or another machine.

I have re-installed windows over hmm.. 10 times now and i have never lost any of my settings or documents, i always get them transfered.

let me know what is available to you and maybe we can make use of it in keeping your data.

Hopefully I am not too late in answering... :tazz:
