Well, the time has come for me to reformat. I think I have a lot of spyware that I can't get rid of, and my machine is becoming insanely slow. I think the best option would be to just reformat and start all over. I'm currently in the process of backing up everything that I want to keep, but are there any other suggestions or tips to help me along in the backup process?? I've never done this on a Windows XP machine before, so I want to make sure I do everything right and everything goes smoothly. Anything, anyone?
