Start from zero, but before deleting, do the copy of following files:standard.xml - for controls (C:\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX\Controls)fsx.cfg, dll.xml, exe.xml, grantedrewards.bin (C:\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX)Whole C:\UserName\Documents\Microsoft Flight Simulator X folder for saved flights and logbookWith repaints, You can copy SimObjects\Airplanes (or Rotorcraft) folder to a safe place, install everything, do a backup (Nortoh Ghost, Acronis etc.) and overwrite recently installed airplanes in SimObjects folder

You will also have to re-install all add-ons as copying them will not work in your new install, simply because the license information will likely not carry over one o/s setup to the next, even on same hardware. I'd make sure you have your order numbers, serial numbers, install files and other account information handy before you do your install. Reinstalling will then be easy.Good luck, you're going to spend some time :)
