I have run out of disk space on my c drive and I would like to delete everything on my computer and reinstall it as if it were brand new again, how do I do that without bringing it to a computer manufacturer

Do you have Dos 6.22 disks??

or do you want to use just 95?

Thre are several ways:

Make a bootable floppy and copy your CD drivers and FDISK.exe, Format.exe & MSCDEx.exe
boot from your floppy
(make sure you can access your CD drive, you may need a device=xxx.sys  entry in your config sys and an mscdex.exe in autoexec.bat - you can use the CD install floppy if you have one)

run FDISK.EXE, if you want to change the current drive partitions (this is optional)
Then run Format C: (and D:, e:. ...and so on).

Now run setup from Win95 CD

If you have your windows '95 CD and floppy boot disk with CD drivers on it;
1 insert boot floppy and turn on computer
2 First make sure you can access the CD
3 Then at the a:> prompt type "format c:" without the quotes
3 then change to CD drive and type "cd win95" without quotes
4 type "setup" and follow the directions
If you need any further info or directions just shout

No. Formatting and re-installing Win'95, then all your other programs, will only improve performance and reliability.
