Robot Maria

Kill or cure?

It occurs to me that I've never run an LJ poll, so here is one that may - or may not - actually influence my behaviour. Think of it as the electronic equivalent of poking a stick into an ant-farm.

Over the weekend, one of three pieces of software installed on my PC appears to have gubbed it to the extent that it's difficult to log in and get anything done before the machine blue-screens. Safe mode, though it doesn't crash, is not tremendously helpful in solving the problem, though no doubt if I persevere more I would be able to fix it eventually.

However, I am considering just wiping the disk and reinstalling, as it is long, long overdue.

What should I do? (I'm making no promises to do what the poll results say!)
