[Computers] How often do you need to...

How often are you forced into the matter of having to reinstall your Operating System, not counting system restore functions*
well it is a force of hand really, i should have reinstalled a few months back, but stuborn me fight the problematics until they become to much to bother with.

So much like a bowl used for food, it must be cleaned to once more to keep food fresh as it is refilled.
so really, how often do you?

* (Commonly disabled due to Malware that places backups of it self there to reinfest the system on restore)

Voted 'never' for my macbook pro :mrgreen:
Well I had to run rescue disc it once due to wife shutting lid = sleep during OS update... :bum:
I have never reinstalled Vista Home Premium 64-bit either.

Guess I got decent computer hygiene.

Will wait a bit before hopping on the win 7 train.

Have had it for 2 years and a bit now, with vista. Never had to re-install :D
As long as I don't experience any trouble in running games at high graph settings there's no need for anything really

I use Windows Vista Ultimate 64 and I play loads of games and well your system can only take so many driver modification in the long run, and so my system has now said good night as it now cant recognize my Graphics card (tried 3 different to get it working, reinstall DirectX, Update drivers, reinstall with graphics files from 2007 to latest, no function, so im going to have to reinstall windows to clear it all.

Windows 2000 here. Nothing major has happened for more than 5 years, even though it's probably filled with spyware, trojans and the like due to the antivirus not working and I lost the ability to defrag a year or two ago... Still, it somehow lives even if it is significantly less fit than it was in it's prime.

With windows 98 it was once every 6 months or so, but XP seems far better.
