Re-installing Windows: The ArcGIS Cure-All
I know it is a pain in the butt that I never want to do again. Re-install Windows. Yesterday, after weeks of frustration trying to get ArcGIS to install and run properly on a machine, I decided to do a "clean install." I thought it would be easy, but noooooo. Microsoft Update runs at least for 24 hours to download and install all the updates to bring the OS to the most current state. Well, I'm done with the XP re-install, which has cured a lot of my computer's issues. Now it's on to installing ArcGIS. . . . . .Someone wish me good luck.
