    formating? making it run slower?

    i though it was a general cure all?

    i've never experienced a slowdown after formating, and besides it defys logic anyways.

    Formatting in and of itself should have no performance effect. What some people probably experience is some difference in the way their os is setup when they reinstall. There are lots of performance features, virtual memory for example, which might be set up differently without the average computer user knowing.

    Talking It is possible!

    If you make a mistake and install real mode drivers instead of protected mode drivers.

    I did this once and took a real performance hit! It took me a week to fiqure it out though.

    That's what I mean. That's part of the os install, not part of the format per se.
