I reinstalled a couple of months ago. I was messing with stuff that I shouldn't have, and I broke it.

Installed Windows 8 at the beginning of August, so that was the last time. Might get a new SSD within the next month or two so I might have to install again (I don't like cloning SSD's lol)

About a month ago, after I got my new SSD. Before that, about a 2 months ago after my HDD died and I had to use a temporary drive. Are you seeing a pattern? :p

before that though, I couldn't say. Probably sometime in 2009/10 after I downloaded a keylogger hidden in a WOW addon..

Do you have bad computing habits?

Or just precaution? In that case - you know... you've subscribed to a totally unnecessary time waster... :/

I installed Windows 8 on release (DreamSpark), now reverted to Win7, which I previously was using since it's release...

9/12 - I upgraded my applications drive. Before that, I had it running for about 3 months. I upgraded to a (POS) OCZ.

Here's the install date for the PCs at my College. Quite recently actually, as they re-image the system every semester.

Since Win7 was released. Before that with XP I was doing a fresh install every 6-12 months to keep things moving along.
