yes but if you have any spyware or viruses they could be carried over as well.

No, you will still be able to use your account name, though I'd save your save files as these won't save.

Have you got internet protection? Spyware/virus etc which you can check the files with? Starr made a thread on it, should only be on page 2 or something Look for that for info

There is it

In that case, you shouldn't have any problems re-installing
