Help Plz - want to wipe out hard drive

My 14 year old dd's computer is running so slow. I want to wipe the thing out and start over. She had/has so much junk on there I can't figure it out.


She is running Windows professional and we are on a network. I'll have her put all her music and documents on an external hard drive. What else do I need to do?


Thanks for your help.

i'd say that would about cover it. Music, photos, important documents you want to save, and you should be ready to go.

thank you for the link Janet. We plan on doing this over the weekend. She's in the middle of trying to figure out how to transfer her ITunes onto the external hard drive. She's having some trouble. You wouldn't happen to know how to do that would you?
