I remember I read somewhere that users used to clean install XP often for the OS to get in shape and get faster in the Windows XP era. Is that true?
It was more about system optimization tools like Ccleaner and defragging your hard drive as self optimization of OS didn't come in until Windows 7. You can do a clean install but ypu'll have hours and hours of updates to download. Win 7 and 10 are better OS versions.
