Open `My Computer`. Select `Tools/Folder Options`. Go to `View`. Select `Show hidden files and folders`. Uncheck `Hide extensions for known file types` and `Hide protected operating system files` click `Apply` and `OK`.
Go to `C:\Windows\pss` and identify the backup of `boot.ini`. Copy this DO NOT CUT it.
Go to `C:\` and `Paste` it. Right click it and re-name it `boot.ini`.
Open `Tools/Folder Options` and reverse the selections made. Click `Apply` and `OK`.
