Okay well

I've got a 80gig HD, 2 partitions, C and D.

I just want to clear C cos it has so much crap on it, I've got all the important stuff on another computer so doesn't really matter about the stuff on it.

I'd prefer to keep D intact though.

I run Windows XP Home Edition, and it's installed on C.

Anyway I can clear C easily?

If you reinstall XP on C you get the option to format C first and leave D untouched.
So should be no problem.

Hmm.

Well it did and I tried it but it said it couldn't because there were temporary setup files needed for installing XP...

:tazz:

Hmm,
So size is no issue.
To be honest, I have no idea what might be wrong.
Can you describe the steps you took after booting with the XP cd ?
