Well it's an operating system. Formatting sounds like a good idea to me.. You'll have to wipe the partition one way or another if you want to get rid of it.

It's not a program that can be uninstalled! How the hell do you uninstall Windows? There is no such option. Neither is there with Linux.

:D Uninstalling an OS is like trying to shoot a gun with itself.

Actually you can uninstall windows.

There's a file called uninstallos.exe or something in the windows\system32 folder IIRC. I can't check right now cos i'm using a mac at uni :wallbang:

Nedved I highly recommend against turning off your CPU fan, so i shan't point you in the direction of any programs ;)

i want to keep my cooling fan "on" Graham, after some time from turning my laptop on, it becomes hot especially in summer, then it becomes annoying to put it on my lap and work...
