Although reinstalling windows may seem hard, the process is easy as long as you are able to follow the steps faithfully.

The first step towards this process is having a thorough backup. This is because during the process it is easy to lose vital information and for you to be sure that this does not happen to your machine, do a proper backup. You may need to use a back up guide if you are not sure of what to do.
2: Put in place the operating system.
In case yours is the latest operating system, the process will be easier because all you will need to do is insert the CD into the drive. However, if your operating system is 98 and the CD autorun is functioning well, you will encounter a screen that does not give you the choice of putting in place the operating system. For you to do fix that problem, click start, then run and after that click enter D and then set up. Because different machines have different letters to represent the CD-ROM drives, choose the letter that represents yours and instead of entering D, enter the letter that represents your CD-ROM.
3: Finalize the process.
After all the above steps have successfully been done click OK. For operating systems like ME or XP the screen will appear the moment the CD starts to operate. Just in case the CD autorun has been disabled get a guide to help you to have it set up and running.
Point to note:
It is vital to read every information on your screen as it comes and follow the instructions carefully for you to avoid any disappointments. Depending on the operating system you are using, some screens will require you to reenter your registration number while others will require you to reactivate the operating system again. All these steps will be necessary for a successful process to be done.
4: Counter check your data.
After that take time to check whether the process has been successful and if all your data is in place. The entire process will take somewhere between 30 and 45 minutes for it to be complete. If this process does not help you, it will be good to reset your hard drive. This is an involving process which requires you to have a complete backup. You will need to have all your data saved and ensure that you put in place the right programs.
