Reinstalling Windows Me
The Operating System CD provides options for reinstalling your
Windows Me operating system. The options can potentially overwrite files
installed by Dell and possibly affect programs installed on your hard drive.
Therefore, Dell does not recommend that you reinstall your operating system
unless instructed to do so by a Dell technical support representative.
To prevent conflicts with Windows Me, you must disable any virus
protection software installed on your computer before you reinstall Windows.
Turn on the computer, and enter the system setup program as directed
by a Dell technical support representative.
