Computer Tip & some questions…

After getting terribly "Corrupt Application" messages from IE/Word/AIM, I'm pretty sure that I need to reinstall my OS... However, since I'm running Vista I'm not *too* surprises. (In case your wondering I was able to get Firefox from a friend via flash drive, thank the lord). Good news: Apparently my campus (state school in CA) offers OSes for 1$ each at the Computer Science Club office. I'll bet other campuses offer some kind of similiar savings. Bad News: If it's a hard drive problem, then I need to get it replaced. I think you can do this easily on a laptop. (?) I have a Dell Inspiron that's not even a year old. I should probably call Dell but they kind of scare me (Yeah, I have a warranty but would like to resolve this with the least amount of parental involvement). Does anyone have any idea how much hard drive replacement would run, or have experience with Dell, or any advice on the whole deal? Side note: Cheapest place to get an external hard drive? I went to back up everything, and my 2 gig flash drive gets nowhere near my 12 gigs in music. I've also been told that if you replace the hard drive, music bought off of iTunes won't play on the new hard drive/iTunes. Blagh. Thanks for any advice anyone can give :)
