Many, many years ago it used to be that people only reformatted their computers as a last resort. People would spend an hour or two (or more) trying to fix the problem and prevent it from recurring. Now, people have one minor little problem and they reformat. It's like it's become trendy. I even see computer techs reformatting computers at the drop of a hat. Is reformatting like this really necessary? I have a computer book that was written by an expert and he basically says reformatting should be a last resort. So why do so many people reformat over the tiniest little problems? Like one guy reformatted because he got one little piece of spyware on his computer. I think that was going way overboard. Opinions?
