I re-installed windows xp after it had become corrupt and wouldn't open.
Now I have two operating systems,the new one which works perfectly and the
old one that doesnt open.How do I uninstall the later?I have to choose
between them every time i boot up,the re-install didnt work as
planned.........

To do this you must do this:

1. Hold the windows key on your keyboard and press the Pause/Brake key
to open the system properties.
2. Click on the "Advanced" tab
3. Under "Startup and Recovaery" click Settings
4. Uncheck "Time to displaylist of operating systems:"
5. Press ok and ok again

Problem Solved, athow the broken OS is still there, it wont ask you
whcih to use any more.
