Re:Delete everything but Windows
Have you tried getting ahold of the manufacturer? A lot of the major manufacturers (ie. Dell, Gateway, HP, Compaq, etc) would be more than willing to provide you with another set of restore disks (usually costing around $10-12). In answer to your original question, I would NOT recommend deleting all of your other folders. The "other" folders hold your programs and even some of your system files. Deleting these might get rid of the program files, but it would leave a LOT of invalid registry entries in the registry. If worse comes to worse, contact Microsoft, once you prove to them that you have a valid copy (assuming you do) they should be able to send you out another copy as well. All should not be lost. Good Luck!
