    Dell Dimension 8200 w/ 2 HD's. Was amazing out of box in boot time and speed. Since Downloading SP2 it's gotten progressively slower to boot and operate with each W Update. (seems like).

    I'm convinced formatting HD and installing new XP with SP2 included is the answer. Experiencing similar problem at work with newer Dell that came w/o SP2.

    Ordered a CD "PC Professor" which has all sorts of format programs on it, but it is a little too complex for me. Is there something that tells me what to do after preparatory backup in simple 1,2,3 order to format HD and install the new WXP Pro w/SP2 that I bought.
