    I think my computer has slowed down...
    Is there a way to speed it up?
    I clean my memory from time to time.
    Is there a solution to this?

    Defragging usually helps, though after several months nothing beats a nice fresh install of Windows.

    Daily Format.... wtf

    I have about 12 DVD-R backups of my hdd, of just data. It would take me the Day to format, load the disc and programs back in fully and set the settings, then i would have 2 format again.... lol

    My harddrives havnt really complained -- yet.

    Do it enough times and it only takes an hour from fresh format to tweaked install. And you can always make ghosts if you want.

    ghosts rule -- you get a completely tweaked and customized config in 5-7 minutes!

    ghost images do rock, but it used to take me around 30 mins to image the machine each time. also, you have to make a new image every time you add or get rid of a program. definitely has it's pros and cons.
