I've reinstalled windows 5 times now within the past month (3 times in the past 3 days) and I'm just wondering have I damaged my computer I did have valid reasOns to do this due to errors I've been getting but finally have been fixed reason I did it so many times is because I kept selecting basic instead of ultimate I'm just wondering I won't have harmed my pc

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.

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.
