Default Re: reformatting problem

Are you just sticking the XP disk in and installing a fresh copy on top of the existing copy? If you are then Windows preserves your files for you.

To wipe everything and have a fresh copy reboot with the CD in and choose to boot from the CD when the prompt appears. Then just follow the instructions.
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 3.7GHz
Samsung Spinpoint 1TB HDD
ATI Radeon HD4890 with VoltageTweak
OCZ Stealth XStream 600w PSU
