Well, I havent been taking really good care of my computer, and theres alot of junk on it, and useless programs running and all that crap, I wouldnt be suprised if there were quite a few viruses on it.
I heard reformating/reinstaling the OS might be soemthing good to do. Would this be ok? How exactly would you do this anyway? I know it involves booting from the windows CD, but anyone want to explain it a little more specificly?
So, if i did this, would everything be gone? I dont really have anything on here that I need to keep, but would i need to reinstall the internet stuff and all that? would it say it doesnt recongnize thinngs like the printer, would that have to be redone?
One more thing, can anyone list the security stuff i should be running. Well, nothing on here is too important, so i dont need maximum anti virus protection, but what should I at least have. In terms of anti virus stuff and a firewall. Is buying systemworks worth it?
this came with norton 2002, but i ran into some problems trying to updat it, i dont remember exactly what they were, because i cant try again because now every time I try to launch norton it comes up and dissappears....
