    Hi folks,

    My friend has given me her computer (Dell DIMENSION C521) to have a look at, the main problem she was saying was that it takes ages to get to her desktop (approx 5 mins). She uninstalled programs thats she thought she didnt use and also used msconfig, but it still takes a while to get to her desktop.

    Im thinking of re-installing her operating system as she has the Reinstallation DVD but when i tried it nothing happened, this is because the operating system is already there.

    Would i be alble to do a clean install of windows XP then use the DELL Reinstallation DVD to reinstall Vista Basic over the top of XP?

    (god i go on and on lol)
