if u dont mind reinstalling everything...then yes a fresh install is the way to go

IMO its the only way to really do it...copying over files over other files is kinda shoddy if you ask me

Hello, I don't mean to hijack this thead but I have a few questions of my own as I am in the midst of reintalling Windows 7 myself.

I have some reinstalling experience, in the past I've used a software program called "Darik's Boot and Nuke" to completely wipe my hard drive for a fresh install. Is this software appropriate for my situation? The real problem is that my current rig doesn't have a disk drive so I would have to utilize a USB stick to launch the software. However I don't know how to format the USB stick to use the software. Might anyone know how to go about doing this? I plan on installing Windows 7 via USB as well by the way which I have ready to go.

And second, I too use Steam so do I need to save my Steam folder or does "Steam Cloud" save all my data for me?

Thank you.

steam cloud saves save games for all valve games and some thirdparty games like Civ 5.
