I have no idea what reformatting is. And, like I just said, he won't change it.

reformatting a drive/partition basically means to rewrite any data that was already there into just empty memory ready for memory storage. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disk_formatting

so if you reformat the drive that windows is located under, then you erase any precious files, the password, windows itself, and ya, everything. Insert a windows cd and install windows all over again on the reformatted drive.

Szayel, just be sure to backup (copy) all your files to some external media if you decide to reformat. You will lose everything if you don't.

Arg, I feel so stupid. I know what reformatting means, but when I'm up late my mind turns to crap.
