I was looking for a support file to one of my programs and noticed I still have a lot of bits and pieces of deleted programs. Also my start-up is a disaster, and takes a long time to start up and shut down. I think it is re-install time. This time I have TI9 so after I install the basic programs and Xp tweaks I will make a permanent copy so I won’t have to do it again. I am disabled with chronic pain so i can only so much at a time and have to rest. Here’s my plan: it takes a long time to re-install so I am planning to do it over a week. I am also concerned that with program Activation, which more and more companies are doing, could cause me problems: 1) Full image of my main drive using IT9 then start re-installing 2) After a while do an image of where I am on re-installing 3 Load the original image back so I can use my computer. I figure I will be doing this over the next week or so. Does anybody see a problem? Also if I keep the same computer name will I have problems with software that requires Activation thinking I am loading to a different computer and bouncing me?
