Default Re-install ME

I've got the three yr-old emachine and would like to re-install ME that came with it, in order to clean out the junk that has accumulated. I understand that I've got to backup everything I want to save, but what do I do with the three yrs' worth of ME and Norton updates ?

Can I copy those folders and re-install those too?

Or should I just go on the web and download three yrs worth of those updates? I've got slooow dial up connect and would take another three yrs to download them.

I was in search and never really found any posts that addressed my questions specifically.

Thanks in advance. Peter

Downloading them shouldn't be that bad. The norton updates won't be more then 2-5 MB. I recently reinstalled XP on one of my computers using a 1 yr old XP disc and there were only about 10 MB of essential updates. I would just reinstall.
