Hi, I now have windows 98 se. I am going to install xp. Do I have to uninstall windows 98 or does it go in as an upgrade. Will I have to re-install all my other programs also ? ( office xp etc.) I'm not sure how to do this and really need help, so I don't mess things up.

I would format your hard drive (Clean Install) check on M/S website for H.C.T. hard-ware compatibility test before you install XP. By formatting your hard-drive you will clean every thing off this will ensure you have no problems from your previous O/S then you will have to re-load your programs from your C/D's save all your work, your e-mail Add book etc. You will have to check your Sram as Windows needs a little more the requirement are on there site, Sunni if you get stuck or need any information for re-install drop me a line.

I also have win 98SE. I have both the win XP upgrade and win XP full install. I decided to go the full install as many people have told me that doing a clean install is much better and has more stability. I also had win ME upgrade and I took it off my computer as all I had was problem after problem. I threw away ME because it was useless. When I first installed win XP home version, it worked great. Now with all the hundreds of patches, it has affected on how my computer functions. It's worse off than before. So where is the reasoning behind this fiasco? Win ME was something that should never have surfaced. That was a big mistake that Microsoft made. Win 98SE is still a lot better than win ME. I wish I had a MAC.
