The store that I go to is selling full copies of Microsoft O/S's, they also sell OEM with just a disk for other programs.
What does VM mean? Virtual Machine?
Oh, and I just had a thought. Would just replacing the old 4GB PC26300 ram with some fresh 4GB PC26300 ram change anything?
Same thought about the new hard drive. I originally just wanted a new hard drive and fresh install of new O/S to just know that its fresh, but with transfering some stuff over viruses might still be in those files, pdf, word, excel etc.
