Ok I have had my laptop for a long time, and seriously I am 100% sure there are about 100 things that I no longer need here. I would like to restart
this, and only keep whats important. I dont need or want IE, so I would like a better OS.
I do about 4 things on this laptop, downloads, and games, but I play them offline, research, and watching my downloads. I have a higher internet cap,
but I am sure that all the stuff that I have installed over the years is cloggin up the system, and I am terrified to do something wrong.
So I would like a do over, without IE ( in my task manager my explorer.exe is taking more space then FF) though I have Vista I dont care for that
either. This is something that I have the patience to do, but researching through blogs seems scary enough. I know of a few options, but I would like
the most informed decision that I can make as this is my only laptop, and if I screw this up..... well my next thread will have to be done with smoke
So if there is any advice that you can share it would be greatly apreciated
P.S. I am going to make a back up CD and I have an external harddrive that I can use to cover my end if needed, but I would like to start anew, thanks
in advance, NRE.
Also I already know that I have Acer Recovery Managment, I just dont want most of this stuff back.
