    You'll need the code FourthWorld sent you in an email when you originally registered. Start Webmerge, and go to the help/register pull down, there's a spot to enter it in there somewhere.

    Are you sure the nurses know you're using the computer?

    See Help->Register to get your reg code before reformatting.

    Why do you need to reformat? There must be something really odd going on in Windowsland, because in the last two weeks I've had a large number of people tell me they've had to reformat. Is Windows really that unstable/virus-prone? There must be a simpler solution.

    Actually, my ODBC wasnt functioning properly, which meant certain programs that used it wouldnt work. One important one was turbo lister.

    I tried everything I could think of to fix it and then I started having trouble uninstalling stuff..... bleh, reinstalling windows didnt do it so I reformatted. Only took a day... my hard drive is partitioned so I put all my "stuff" on the D drive where it was safe.

    It's not so bad really..... the computer is 2.5 years old.. a cleanout didnt hurt it.

    I've always wondered about that--once you put all your stuff back, what keeps the HD from just instantly becoming as cluttered as it was before?

    I'd think that it would work kind of like taking all the stuff out of a room only to put it back the same way it was...

    Over a period of time the registry fills up with junk.
    By putting a clean OS on you get a virgin registry again.
    Windows definitely benefits from being stripped down and given a clean install every so often.

    Well...... there's half the programs you forget to put back for one thing..... LOL

    Naa, things get corrupted etc over the years, honestly a fresh hard drive isnt a bad thing.. as long as you have all your disks etc

    This thread sounds like an advertisement for OS X.
