What about upgrading my current hard drive, or is just getting a new one the exact same thing?

the only hd upgrade you could do without replacing it is putting a faster motor on it and changing the firmware to adapt to that new speed. in which case you'd probably need an EE degree.

yeah but harddrive improvements are not as susceptible to flash upgrades. The platters and head limit the capacity

"upgrading" a harddrive is replacement or partnering - it's not like a driver upgrade.

Since I am currently down to 1.98GB of free space on my hard drive, and still having to do endless salvos of Windows Updates downloads, I've been thinking about formatting my hard drive, but if I do so I think that'll wipe away 3-4 months (total estimated time: 3 years or more) of Windows Updates. So what the question I'm trying to convey here is, if I choose to format, will I have to start over again with the Windows Updates, a simple answer will suffice, none of that 'Techie of Mt. Olympus' guff.

Yes. I believe it *is* possible to put windows updates on a CD. But i've never taken the time to bother, so you will have to google or ask somebody how.

1. Make sure your Windows is legal.
2. Go to Windows update and click validate.
3. Go to Windows Update and click express. Click through the dialogs.
Repeat setp 3 untill it says there are no more updates.

~30 minutes will have passed if you have a cable connection to the net.

Yeah, it really takes little time to get the necessary updates - but make sure the first thing you do, before connecting your computer to the 'net, is an installation of your favorite antivirus software.
