I am going to format my drive. It has never been done since new. About 2 years old and seems to be really slow. I have heard horrow stories about connecting to the internet after a format without having the MS security patches and updates. Is this a problem to worry about? Also should I try to save my current drivers? Next how can I save my E-Mails ? The Inbox, Sent messages and Deleted messages that are in Outlook? Have XP Home. Never done this before!!!!!
