  2. Hey =D
    Re-installing windows will never damage a computer, if an error occur during the installation phase it will more likely be the hard drive , or the RAM.. So no it did not harm your PC.
  3. I did get -logon-process-initialization-failure however my computer restarted now everything works perfectly just wondering if this was a problem checked my error reports and nothing is there

  9. If you are using SSD then you will be wearing the NAND cells. But that is hardly a problem to worry about. What you should be worry about is the dirty cells left behind that will slow the performance. You will need to clean them.
