I have been having some problem with my user profile, it becomes corrupted 2 or 3 times a week and at boot it cannot be loaded, XP loads a temp. profile. I then have to do restore, it usually works on the 2nd attempt. Some people have said that I should do a clean install (I upgraded from Windows 98se). 1st question: Anyone knows what the hell is going on with those user profile, why they "go bad". 2nd question: How do I make a clean install from DOS of XP, apparently you cannot do that. 3rd question: Fat 32 or NTFS? Half of my HD (30gig) is mp3 and iso games I don't want to format, so should I format the hard drive with XP on it with NTFS, or stay with FAT32. Help would be appreciated!
