If say, you suspect you have some viral files that replaced some important window system files lurking about your computer… and regardless of what you try, you cant seem to locate them, let alone get rid of them...
And there’s a good chance that it’s the root cause of your systems disgustingly high PF usage.. (Say 250 PF regularly, because I never had many apps running at the same time.)
And if on top of all that, you can’t EVER seem to get your hard drive to defragment properly (Mines always stuck on 75% defragmentation… ALWAYS!)
Would reformatting my hard drive and reinstalling my OS system possibly correct any to all of these problems?
I just want to make sure it’s the wisest idea to reformat my system and recover my OS with my recovery discs and start from scratch again. I backed up all my files.. now I want to make sure I’m not making some mistake that I’ll regret later on. I remember I regretted formatting my hard drive back when I had Windows 95 on my old 166 NEC, I lost everything and the OS didnt install again properly, but then that could have been because it was an older opperating system.
Is this the wisest choice, or should I take a different approach? I’ve tried posting my fragmentation and viral problems on this site before but the approaches never seemed to resolve the problems. Any ideas?
