    A bit of simple computer help...

    Hello,

    I am a total computer newbie. So if i use the wrong names for things.. please forgive me.

    I have a laptop.
    Ive been using it for about 2 years now, but its starting to run slow. I now want to delete everything off the hdd and start again.

    However, i do not have any windows install disks to re-install windows.
    How can i delete everything everything apart from windows?

    Does it have a windows sticker on it somewhere with a Serial# ? becuase youre allowed to borrow a CD and use your own Serial#

    If you have 256MB or RAM or less then you'd want to upgrade that to 512 or more for a decent performance upgrade.

    Go into your add/remove programs, from there you will be able to remove all sorts, just remove anything that you dont use. ;o)
    Slick!
