No, Jac - I haven't. Formatting my computer is something that I REALLY want to do, but am not afforded that opportunity. You see, my computer came with just a System restoration Disk, and initiatting that procedure seems to only restore my unit to the way it came from the factory. I don't have a dedicated (stand-alone) OS program, which leaves me limited (I've been told) in the above 'Formatting' respect. There IS a 'Format' feature that I found in one area (I can't remember just where, now), but it could only be activated (blackened) for the "D" drive, which is my smallest (4+gigs) drive. That same button was incapable of being activated (light grey) for the balance of my 160gig capacity on drive "C". And, isn't that the drive (C) which would need formatting? Drive "D" has all the pertinent programs for System Restorations, and if I lost that I would really be in a pickle.
