    Hi all,

    This is my first posting, I'm sure one of you clever people out there can point me in the right direction.
    My problem occured gradually I think, every new piece of software I installed seemed to have a problem, I do all the usual stuf like defrag, run adware daily, nav weekly, windows updates automatically and also chkdisc, which is what brought this to my attention..everytime I try to disk clean my c:\ drive it freezes, I managed to clear my secondry drive in safe mode but still no joy with my c:\ drive. Also tried to install windows XP service pack 2, but everytime a get hit with the BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH.
    I have moved all the files I wish to keep to my D:\ drive ready to format my c:\ drive, but I can't even format the drive....I can't boot to A:\ drive even though it's my first drive in my BIOS, I couldn't F8 until cleaned up the reg files with Tweak XP Pro, and even cleaning some reg files I keep getting TBSODeath.
    I wouuld appreciate some help with this problem, or failing that the best way to format my c:\ maybe through DOS.

    Regards, daveray
