  2. How can i carry away windows xp from my laptop and reinstall windows Me -the laptops native software?
    I suffer with recently bought a in use accustomed to laptop that is old. The mortal physically I had bought it from had installed windows xp on it, indeed for all that it from the word go came with windows Me. I fall short of to remove the windows xp because it runs slows on the laptop because it takes up more thought than the windows Me would. Also I need to remove windows xp because it is an proscribed copy. So when I tried to run updates on it, windows would not introduce updates because the windows xp is not genuine.
