Reformatting is the best thing for your computer probably. Save whatever docs, music, and pictures you have that are irreplaceable and go ahead and wipe it.

By 'Wipeout' I meant to 'wipe' or 'reformat' the drive and THEN reinstall the OS.....

rule one of PC installs.

Make 3 partitions at install time.

Partition 1- OS
Partition 2- Data
Partition 3- Sensitive data

That way if you need to reinstall the OS you can do so without losing anything other than some time.

well first of all, what are your computer specs? As other people have said, reformatting your hard drive and putting in a fresh install of windows is your best bet.

A cheap easy upgrade is to just increase your RAM. Doubling your RAM to 512 should be enough for the time being. That'll provide a temporary fix until your ready to get a new comp. Since you don't have the OS cd's, your stuck with your situation unless you buy a new set. When vista arrives, you might think about getting a new comp since i can't really see your computer being able to run it efficiently if you wanted to upgrade.

But I would try to find an install CD of XP and reformat if you aren't planning to get a new one anytime soon..
