I've heard that I should reinstall XP every few years or so. It's been running seemingly much slower than it was when I got it and it's even had a new mobo/faster processor. I've also upped the virtual memory and such. It's also had some files deleted due to the removal of a few viruses. I'm not a comp n00b, been using and building them since 13 years ago. But since I'm so "old school" I never realized that reinstalling windows was a common maintenence procedure. If I reinstall, is there anything I should keep in mind? What will I lose? I've heard I'll need to reinstall drivers and directx stuff again, which is small potatos. Do I just rerun the XP install program? It automatically installs over? Thanks in advance.
