    HELP.I AM HAVING PROBLEMS WITH MY WINDOWS XP AND INSTALLING NEW DRIVER FOR A PRINTER AND DVD \RW IS IT POSSIBLE TO COMPLETLY WIPE MY HARD DRIVE AND REINSTALL WINDOWS XP AGAIN

    Yes it is possible, as long as you have the XP set up disk or disks. Just make sure you back up any data that you do not want to lose.

    You might want to describe the problem you are having, in more detail. There are alot of helpful, knowledgeable people here. You might not have to do a clean install.

    Here is a link to a guide to re-installing windows xp, it includes pictures. So it may be easier to follow.

    It may seem a bit complicated, but it isn't really.
    Just follow the on screen instructions.

    Once you have re-installed windows xp, it may be a good idea to keep an admin account with a password for yourself and limited accounts for your children.
