Congress will probably vote on SOPA soon. We don’t yet know what the outcome will be, but we do know that the copyright industries have donated heavily to nearly every senator and representative in Washington. If the measure (or a slightly modified version, like PIPA) passes, then the internet will be fundamentally altered. As it stands, the internet is like an open highway, where — apart from engaging in blatantly incriminating acts like terrorism, spilling government secrets, or distributing child porn — you’re basically free to do what you want. If SOPA passes, the internet will become more like a highway that is littered with police checkpoints and speed traps.

This howto will demonstrate how to keep all of your data while reinstalling Windows without copying it off of your hard drive. This will only work if you have a Windows XP CD or a real source to install it from, NOT a manufactures "Restore CD" which reloads all the junk it came with. I have seen people on the internet dread reinstalling Windows because it takes so long to backup gigabytes of data and to restore it later!
