Hi everyone. Isn't great that traders end up being computer experts also?? Here is my question. I'm running Windows XP on a Dell 1.8 ghz. Super machine, no problemos until... About 1 year later, and endless installs/uninstalls, add/remove programs, etc..... the PC just aint running like it used to. Lockups and crashes are more frequent, and the hard drive runs like a mofo. I've done the defrag, ran a clean registry, and it still doesn't run the same. So I purchased Partition magic 8.0, hoping to back up the needed files to a new Partition and then use the RESTORE disk that came with computer to bring it back to new. Is this a good idea? Or are there any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
