There is alot of stuff on this used laptop i have and I want to get rid rid of all the old stuff but keep the Windows XP and photoshop software. Anyway to do this or do i h ave to have the orginal XP and PS disc?
Well, you could just uninstall everything you don't want from control panel and do a registry/file clean with a program like Ashampoo Winoptimizer or CCleaner, but remember it won't be TRULY clean in the sense that it's hard to COMPLETELY remove/uninstall a program because it always leave behind some data. Your best bet would be to do a format and reinstall XP.
