:tazz: How does one go about wiping out their hard drive and reloading from their boot disk? It looks like that's what I'll be doing because this computer has not been maintained properly with the appropriate updates (Windows, Explorer, etc.), no spyware removal, nothing . . . and I have a feeling there's way too many problems for me to try to fix them all. So, what's the best way to start over? There's nothing we need to keep on the hard drive.
