Ok, I have decided to reblow my PC, but to try and keep my important files on it... I have inserted the windows XP disk, and am at the windows XP sort of set up thing... It has a list of partitions, I selected C:/ but it says it is too full... How can I delete stuff from it without actually loging onto my pc? (because it doesnt get that far).

the thing is... you can't... but i wonder why it would tell you that though... it should install over the existing windows... well I can't really help you with that... it wouldv'e been okay if you had 2 partitions, one for windows and one for files so you can format the windows one but... now i am out of ideas! dont give up though if the files are really important because i dont want to force you to format...

You could probably look up some of the DOS commands to delete stuff off of the C Drive and delete some unnecessary program file folders (If you know what they are).

I wonder why i didn't think of that OF COURSE!

just put in a boot disk and go to dos then use dos commands to free space!

Ex: C:>del *folder adress*

Ah, Phew, I managed to repair all the corrupt and missing windows files.

Quite clever for a 12 year old, eh? :P

Congratulations! well you're certainly better than most adults trying to fix their computer...

They post their problem then re-post that they have made it worse.........

or some people just don't understand what you tell them (technical wise)

Good job!
