once upon a midnight dreary, while i pron surfed, weak and weary, over many a strange and spurious site of ' hot  xxx galore'. While i clicked my fav'rite bookmark, suddenly there came a warning, and my heart was filled with mourning, mourning for my dear amour, " 'Tis not possible!", i muttered, " give me back my free hardcore!"..... quoth the server, 404.

Don't forget memory and power supply drivers, or else you'll get PEBKAC and ID-10-T errors.

Windows, Windows Update x 10, drivers, anti-virus, etc.

I have a router, so I'm not too worried about a fresh install being hacked.

Yes a defrag is definatly necessary. Diskeeper is the best program out there [in my opinion] to use when doing this. Very reliable and works fantastic.

Very true, also if anyone needs help with the Windows Genuine Advantage crap that always seems to be a constant thorn in your side, go here for assistance.
