As XpUser said stop before you leap. Reformatting will get nothing back, you will loose everything. Were all these programs preloaded when you got the computer? do you have all the required instalation disks and drivers? lots of questions to answer before you start. Most important question is why you feel it's needed? there may be an easier solution.
i had win vista when i first bought my com and then when win 7 came out i bought the upgrade disc. so here's the problem i want to reformat my com now. will it be win7 or win vista at the end of the format?
