I decided to do that, being used to Windows I was a bit worried about removing everything knowing how long it takes to reinstall it all. But within an hour I was up and running with Linux mint again just as before, the only program which isn't working too well is HellaNZB it doesn't want to download anything so will need to look into it. Apart from that a flawless installation
Always wondered why the more experienced Linux users do a clean install when the latest version of the OS comes out now I see why! It's so easy to do! With Linux Mint having all the codecs etc right their out of the box what more can you want.
On a sidenote it works a treat with my laptop, with Windows XP it was crawling at times and its not a old or poor spec laptop. Linux Mint is a lot quicker.
