PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Windows XP PRO
Problem Application Name & Version:Various
Problem Hardware Make & Model:N/A (I think!)
Error Messages:Too many to mention!




Sorry above info is not great.

Basically what happened is as follows:
I had a copy of XP pro installed it and for a year or so everything was good. THEN
I installed SPSS which caused my comp to crash and it would then not boot at all - not even in safe mode. SO
Having lost my original copy of XP pro I got a new one and performed in in place upgrade. And re partitioned some of my drives in an attempt to restructure my comp as I'd gained more knowledge researching the in place upgrade and felt this would be beneficial.
BUT
now many functions do not operate: search, run, open with etc....
I've decided the best option is to restart from scratch and so want to format my hard drive BUT I have once agin lost my Xp copy and so have yet another. Will this impact? As I feel it may have contributed to the current state and so would like to avoid a repeat of this.

Also can I just format from the new XP disk or do I need something else to perform this task.

I have backed up all files I want saved.

Ta.
