Formatting my C drive soon. Time for a thorough digital lavage. Looking for any suggestions to minimize potential anguish. Yes, I've complete data backups & original machine's discs. One concern was XP's SP2 patch, so I ordered it from M$ for a nominal charge. (260Mb download is a lot of fun with dialup). There's a bunch of other M$ security patches on my C drive as cab files, but I'm not sure what to do with them. Figure it will take better part of a day for all the re-installs, configs, hopefully restoring my machine's previous youth and vigor. Suggestions, comments welcome.
