Is it possible to format my computer without the Windows Installation CD?

When I purchased my PC, Windows was already installed. Now, 4 years later I need to format my hard drive due to many viruses but I don’t have the Windows CD. Is it possible to do it without the CD?

I see this question a lot in computer help forums and Q&A type sites. This is an excellent example of how Reimage can help you reformat your PC without using a Windows installation disc.

The Reimage repair replaces system files automatically. It’s like a clean Windows installation in one hour, without losing any programs, settings or any of your personal user data.

The PC Key to Happiness – A Properly Maintained OS

Routine maintenance is highly recommended to guarantee efficient and reliable PC performance, even when there is nothing clearly wrong with your computer. Failure to perform maintenance on your PC will eventually cost you – whether it’s in the form of money spent on repair or replacement, loss of data and/or time wasted.

These days money unnecessarily spent hurts more than ever, and the important files that we keep stored on our computers are sometimes irreplaceable. Maintenance can help you achieve the best performance out of your PC without making a costly trip to your local repair shop to help you fix a problem you could have prevented yourself.

I have a PC problem …

My first post and I am doing it without my PC, why? Because my Vista is down again.

One of my Vista’s 500,000 objects has probably been overrun by another object causing my entire machine to hang and run slowly. Don’t get me wrong, I think that Microsoft are doing an amazing job building the most common and scalable platform that anyone ever made – but, with so many moving parts, statistically, something will not work right.

So, what can I do now, having no PC to work with?
