Re-doing the computer.

By preeti_shah ·
I have a computer at home. The system is getting slower and slower. There are several applications on it. I cleaned it up as much as I could, by deleting all that was un-necessary. I also ran scan disk on it. There seems to be a lot of residual stuff of the removed applications. Now I want to remove everything and start from scratch. How can I safely remove and then re-install Windows 95 on the disk? I think I have the recovery disk (the one you get from manufacturer). I also have DOS on a disk. What do I do If I do not have recovery disk?

Thanks,

If your computer came w/ a recovery disk it is probably proprietary ie: compact,ibm,dell etc. if you format w/out the recovery disk you could and most likely will loose some bios settings and wont be able to get to a c to reload anything. Just something to think about.

Hi if you have backed up your imporant files, then I would put the retstore disc in go to start, run type in setup (if is your cd) and click ok I believe this will reinstall your system to orginal config, if you have adde dany thing to your computer (cd-rw, zip drives sound cards or the like remove them first).rockyolson@charter.net
