Angry I've had it! I'm formatting my computer! need help...

I want to start over with my computer. Its been running slow, and I am tired of running so many anti-virus programs and spyware programs, defrag... So I want to completely refresh everything.

I am currently uploading a lot of content to my web space, and I would like to make sure I upload the important files.

I have uploaded all my documents (pictures, music, favorites...), and a few other directories I wish to keep, but I want to know what else is important. I have All the programs I need on disc, so I can reinstall them.

I don't know how to keep my outlook e-mails. Can someone help me with that? And also, let me know if there are any other important files or directories I should backup. Thanks!

Outlook (Office)
Create a pst and copy all your mail into it. That will store it for you.

Good luck

It sure would, but my CD burner is about to be thrown in the street, and my DVD burner still needs to be bought.

I have webspace with a hosting company. Unlimited space. But my 1MB upload speed doesn't seem fast enough to upload these files.
