Arrghh! My start button/taskbar is not responding to my clicks. I am so fed up that I am going to reformat my HD and start fresh. I right clicked on the A: to make a boot disk. I was going to use FDISK and FORMAT to start over.

FDISK does not work. The screen asks me about large disk formatting and I click "Y". It goes to a screen and just gives me a prompt in the lower right... and it just sits there.

I tried FORMAT at the DOS prompt and it says it can't be run at the DOS Prompt. I am lost.

Either I am stupid or confused. How do I wipe my computer's HD?:p

Update: GOT IT!
