When your computer or laptop was new, it probably seemed quite fast. Over time you may have noticed it getting slower, or that some things don't work any more. Perhaps it crashes occasionally, or it is infected with viruses that display unwanted pop-ups.
In many cases a Tune-Up or Virus & Spyware Removal service will fix the problem, however, reinstalling Windows is guaranteed to return your system back to the condition it was in when you bought it, or better. It is sometimes easier to do a reinstallation than to track down all the problems that have accumulated. Often this is a good alternative to buying a new computer. Many older systems are perfectly adequate for Internet browsing, email and office applications.
When to Reinstall
A good time to reinstall is when you want to fit a new hard drive to provide more disk space or to improve performance, but it can be done at any time on problematic systems. Depending on your situation, you might also take the opportunity to upgrade to Windows 7 or 8.1 or 10.
What Needs to Be Done?
The basic steps required are:
Backup Data - Documents, photos, email, music, video, and anything else that you may want to keep.
Upgrade Hardware - Fit new hard drive or memory, etc, if you have chosen to do so, and fix any problems.
Install Windows - Format your hard drive, and install a clean version of Windows from scratch.
Install Device Drivers - Install device drivers for your motherboard and other components.
What Else is Required?
Once these steps are completed, your system should be as it was when new or better. All that remains is to set it up, just as you would a new computer.
