This may be very simple but when i go into my computer and i right click on C: one option is FORMAT, if i was to do that what would it do? I am not entirly sure, i thought it may have something to do with freeing up space. But if anyone can offer any assistance on this that would be great thanks....

Format wipes the drive.

Actually if you try this from within Windows on the drive on which Windows is installed then it should not let you.

But I wouldn't try it anyway.

If you want to free up space, get crapcleaner from click here and run it; amazing how much space is taken up by temp files.

never run or delete anything if you are not sure
it's the main cause of members problems with their pc

Well said stalion. I think manual deletion, and installing and then unistalling some of the many rubbish games and utility programmes is the biggest cause of problems with computers. Especially those programmes that have no proper unistall routine.

ps. And I think I must start proof reading my replies before I post.
