If I wanted to delete everything off my computer, and put it back to factory settings, but keep programs such as GP5, POD FARM, and other things of that nature, how would I do this? My computers to cluttered.

Well, i mostly work with dell computers but give this a try. This sounds pretty similar to what you have to do on a Dell.

when you first power on the machine (assuming it's either a dv2000, dv6000, or dv9000, or hdx9000), hit F11 on the keyboard repeatedly until the recovery screen pops up. Click on advanced options, click system recovery, then click OK when prompted. the recovery process will begin and take about 25 minutes on a 5400rpm hard drive. then you must reinstall everything that isn't factory.

NOTE: THIS WILL ERASE ALL DATA THAT ISN'T PREINSTALLED. AFTER THE RECOVERY, YOU MUST INSTALL THE INTERNET SOFTWARE, VIRUS SOFTWARE, ALL UPDATES (THERE'LL BE A LOT!!), AND PERSONAL SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE. BACK UP ALL DATA BEFORE YOU BEGIN. ONCE THE RECOVERY PROCESS STARTS, IT CANNOT BE STOPPED, OR THE SYSTEM WILL GET CORRUPTED.

Hopefully this will help.

P.S. Give this recovery process about a day to get it over with. Don't rush it for best results, and use pc decrapifier to remove all the bloatware and trial ware installed by hp on your pc.

Copy the folders of the programs you want in Program Files and put them on a USB. Then transfer them back.

Backup what you want first onto a USB stick/CD or something, by all means. Lol.
