Upgrade #2: Windows XP “Clean” Installation

As you saw in Table 17.1, some users have no choice but to do a “clean” installation of Windows XP. Other users might choose to install clean, to avoid any baggage (in terms of settings, and so on) associated with their previous operating system.

note

To uninstall Windows XP and revert back to your previous operating system, open the Control Panel and launch the Add or Remove Programs utility. Click the Change or Remove Programs button, scroll down the list of programs and select Windows XP, and then click Change/Remove. Follow the onscreen instructions to proceed with the uninstall. Note, however, that any software applications that you added or modified because of the Windows XP installation might not work properly when you revert to the previous operating system.
