my desktop has windows me installed. The computer has numerous problems from freezing to not shutting off. I do not need any of the files on the computer. I would like to delete all and use recovery disks to start anew. Not real computer saavy so I need guidance as to how to do this.

if you have actual recovery disks all you should have to do is put the first disk in and restart your computer and follow the instructions.

If you do a recovery in Windows Me would you lose any data. Having about the same problem on a friends computer but they have a lot of information they want saved.

if it is a recovery disk from the computer manufactureer then probably..... doesn't matter what os either.... if they have an os disk then you CAN do an in place reinstall but with ME it's debateable if that will do any good.
