    just wondering
    « on: February 01, 2009, 06:15:24 PM »
    hi, ill get right to the point, my comp is running very very slow for everything it does, IE, Games, just flat out turning on. i just recently moved to the USA and i seem to have left my winXP cd back home... :S what my question is...is there any way to format (set my comp back to factory settings) without that CD?
    ive been tryin to read in different areas on the web but i havnt found anything about it.. if i cant do it without the CD, is there a way i can download the CD from the web? certain circumstances prevent me from working at this time so i cant purchase the cd
    any help is greatly appreciated

    You may have recovery partition.
    What is the brand, and model of your computer?

      You'll need Windows CD to reinstall.

      1. Please, post some computer info:
      - processor type, amount of RAM (hold Windows logo key, hit Pause/Break key)
      - hard drive size/free space (open "My Computer", right click on hard drive letter, click "Properties")

      2. Download HijackThis:

          Hi – I am about as far from an expert as it possible to be; however, just from my own experience I have one idea to offer: I see you have Kaspersky AV- Security Suite installed on your system. I had this software on my desktop and after weeks of ongoing nightmarish issues and very slow operation, I hired a tech to come in and diagnose the issue. We discovered that Kaspersky has something of a reputation for slowing systems down. I uninstalled and canceled my subscription and went to a different security package and have not had any more issues. This was the only change made to the system, but it seemed to fix the slowness issue. This is just my idea and certainly should not be considered an expert opinion.
