|So rather than running a cleaner, you'd rather start from scratch? OK, I guess that's your business.|
Do you have the Vista disc & the product key code? Do you have copies of all the device drivers (chipset, video, sound, network, wireless, etc)? Do you have copies of all the software you'd like to reinstall? Did you back up all your important data (pictures, videos, word docs, emails, favorites, etc) so that they can be transferred back to the new Windows installation again?
