Solved Formatting laptop (XP, 2 drives)

Post by MalletBrigade on Mon May 18, 2009 1:43 pm

hello all
we have a dell inspiron from 2007 with both C and D drives.
due to recent malware issues, we considered formatting the C drive.
of course there are many ??s about doing this -
can we save the bookmarks - say to D?
will this scrub the malware ?
if we can save them off, (dont know how) should
we save them to a jump drive?
will formatting C wipe out XP? we dont think the recovery disc(s) for this unit are available.
system restore is not functioning, and even before the recent issues was never very useful.
thanks for any consideration.
