So I just got my new 9300 and so far I love it. I tossed in the 2 gigs of rams thus far. I have been reading about the 2 ways of cleaning up the system via add/remove progs or reinstall xp. how necessary is the full reformat? can i get away with just uninstalling what i dont need? it just seems like reformatting might be a huge pain in the ass because i might overlook a lot of things to reinstall. also, how many of the progs are necessary/? i mena i deleted aol and other isps, but im afraid that i am going to delete somthing that i need. i have no idea what most of the progs do. i mean there are a few w/ names refering to the net and modems, but i dont know which ones will benefit my pc and which wont. i dont want to reformat and loose all of my lazy progs that do auto updates and cover my ass on occasions. sorry for my slight notebook retardation. i want to ditch all of my crap but i dont want to overlook necessary progs or drivers if i have to reinstall everything. opinions and advice are greatly appreciated!
