You can just do a system repair. Or you can split your drive into two partitions. Drag your file into the empty partition and reformat your boot partition. Then drag all your files back.

either like above, system repair.. if using an older version of windows do a google for deltree to do a reinstall. takes to long to type out, but you deltree the windows directory, rename the autoexec and config to something like autoexec.old config.old, reinstall.

You could just put the files on a cd, reformat, then put the files back on.

Torvalds was contemptuous of Microsoft's claims and has asked Redmond to name the patent infringements so that their veracity can be challenged and workarounds found.
"Naming them would either make it clear that Linux is not infringing at all (which is quite possible, especially if the patents are bad), or would make it possible to avoid infringing by coding around whatever silly thing they claim,"

"So the whole 'We have a list and we're not telling you' should tell you something. Don't you think that if Microsoft actually had some really foolproof patent, they'd just tell us and go, 'nyaah, nyaah, nyaah!'?"
