I wanted to format and reinstall my XP program. I got so much junk in my
computer that I want to clean them out. I have one problem, what if I don't
know my ID # or information to put in after I reinstall my computer. Where
can I find my id # and etc for this computer before I format it and start
all over again from scratch?

Hi

If you are talking about the Product Key, and if XP is still installed,
download/install Belarc. You will be able to find the PK with that program:

I couldn't download any free software, this had never happened to me before.
Do you think there is something blocking in my computer?

Hi Lauria

Are you getting an error message when trying to download any files? Are you
using Internet Explorer, or a 3rd party download manager? Something is
blocking the downloads - if you have XP SP2 installed, have you got the
pop-up blocker set toit's highest level? That will then ask you if want to
download any files via a small srtip at the top of the screen.
