How do I reinstall Windows XP?

Question

I had to reinstall my Windows XP because of a virus crash. The problem is when it reinstalled, it went to Drive D-HP recovery. Now it keeps telling me low disk space, not enough memory. How do I get everything back to my hard drive C? I have tried to do it again and it still goes to the Drive D.

Thanks

You need to change the memory The reason for this is because, since you had a virus on your system No matter how many times you install your software, it will adopt what is on the memory Changing your memory will eliminate the problem you are experiencing when you are trying to install your operating system.

With a clean installation, you erase all data, reformat your hard disk, and install Windows XP from scratch You get to start over, getting rid of old data, leftover files, and unused programs that were cluttering your hard disk The downside is you have to reinstall programs, backup and restore your data, and reconfigure the settings you want to keep using Clean installations are worth the extra effort, in my opinion In many cases, performance is improved after a clean installation, because you've gotten rid of the problems your old setup had.
