In the past few months my computer has been slower, when I try and have it go to sleep (Stand By) it wonít, and programs are not opening (specifically itunes and eBook, for Sony Reader).
I decided to try and reboot/reformat my hard drive. I have Windows Vista (32-bit CD and license key. How do I wipe my hard drive clean and start over (as if new from factory)?
System and other info:
Windows XP Professional
version 5.1.2600, Service Pack 3 build 2600
System Type: x86-based PC
Security Software: CA Security Center
I have the CD for Office, and my printer. I should be able to get all other programs I need (itunes, eBook for Sony Reader, AIM, Skype, etc).
Iíve tried defragging, scan disk, uninstalling programs, etc.
Thanks for your help,
