    I do it monthly because i installed and removed a lot of program every single day, so the computer gets mess.

    is there any bad for the computer i format in advance monthly?

    p.s. I do ghost every time, just feel like reinstall is more clean and clear than ghost, isnt it?

    :hammer:

    Defragment as often as necessary. That means whenever you install/uninstall or create/delete any large files or programs you should run defrag. For example, each time you install a new program or game, run defrag afterwards to make sure it runs smoothly the next time you start it up.

    And you don't need to reformat your drive so often. The last time I reformatted/reinstalled was 8 months ago. Use my first XP guide for a series of things you can do regularly to keep your system clean and well maintained.

    I format at little as possible because it takes too long to get back up and running - or maybe I'm just lazy... :?:

    Yes Mr.Tweak you are lazy...:p
    Just kidding...: peace2:
    well I formatted my HD today after 8 months of tweaks, tricks, POS softwares and a bad logonui.exe
    There was no need to format even today if i had shown some sense while playing with my logon screens...
