Hello, I would like to erase everything off my harddrive, with the exception of XP of course. The problem is, I dont have the disk, if infact there is one. I am just wondering if this is possible. Some help would be great. Thank you!

I would say the only way to get remotely close to what you want without an XP disk is to uninstall everything you can. Next you'll need to install something like Ashampoo's "Win Optimizer Platinum Suite" to clean all the orphaned registry entries left behind by removing all the software. There's really no good way (that I know of) to do this without your setup disk. If you bought your pc with Windows already installed then you definitely should have gotten a disk, if not then you need to purchase Windows Xp and reinstall it fresh. You'll be glad you did.
