This piece of junk didnt come with a CD, instead it has the O/S behind a partiion on virtual drive D: Its a piece of jgarbage and XP sucks, but.....the wife likes it so I tollerate it.
What I NEED to do is go in, drop the partion, format the whole damn thing and start from scratch like I do in 98......but since I dont have XP on CD (thanks, HP--asswipes) thats pretty much impossible.
The way this thing is acting,and some of the sites the kid has gone to (lop-dot-com ring a bell ?) I have a pretty good idea that the garbageware is imbeded into the D: drive, so it just re-installs itself along with a restore.
Anybody know a way around to problem?--or should I just open the front door and heave this thing into the middle of the road ? (dont laugh, I've done it before when I run out of patience with a computer)
