Well, to be pedantic, have a look at Les's post, again.  What do you
have to do, in that list, after a "reformat"?  ;-)

I have one Win98SE box left here, that's been reinstalled only two or
three times, at least one of those was a hard drive change, and another
was so many strange faults that I just gave up trying to diagnose it.
In general, I avoided the three/four Rs of Windows debugging.  But then
I rarely installed stuff on the box, it's crap-outs were generally down
to itself, not me.

But for a large number of people, it's what they have to do, and quite
often.  They don't know how to diagnose a file, and/or they don't have
the time.

(This box runs FC6, my others run FC4 & FC5, in case that's
 important to the thread.)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
