a friend of mine was given a pentium 4 pc with win xp.it is infested with everything. virus, bugs, worms porno, you name it its got it. needs a fresh install after wiping everything out. trying to plod through it all and weed out the bad stuff is out of the question. the guy doesn't know much about computers anyway and just wants to start clean. is there anyway to reformat without buying a new copy of win xp home edition?

Hi rgray21

What brand is the computer?
HP has recovery disks you can purchase, I believe Dell does as well.

I know when your pc gets that bad you want to find the closest sledgehammer and just beat the *(&%%%^ out of it. Have they already wiped everything out? I wouldn't advise that. Instead post what problems you are having & have the great people on this board walk you/them through cleaning it. they know how to clean the dirtiest pc's.
