    How often do you wipe everything off your computer and start over?

    Rules:
    Ghost and other similar programs count.
    The operating system must be completely reinstalled, upgrades don't count.

    *Got this idea from Cosmin at in this thread

    I think that I clean install every 6 months or so... I just format when xp becomes unstable and goes all slow and stuff or when i change something big in the hardware. Running on a 3 weeks old xp now, because i changed my hdd.

    I think 6 months is going to be the popular answer...Thats how long it takes for me to make xp unstable (through tweaks and downloads). A year is too long and I have not got Ghost working smoothly yet.

    every 6 months you try a new tweak and you f*ck up your system... and a year is too long for Xp to survive... If someone answers never, that guy must tell me how he managed it :D
