o/s is xp home sp2 networked through a router on aol broadband (2 x pc's)

everything seemed ok until the weekend when the contacts and address book in aol vanished on my other half's pc.


I have now noticed that system restore, part of microsoft search and there are an alarming number of gaps in the programme folders page when I open it although I have no idea what was in the spaces.

So far I have run a reg healer programme, sfc /scannow and used the xp disc with it, reloaded aol software all to no avail.needless to say I can't do a system restore because it's not there !!!!

I have logged into aol on another computer and the address book etc are all intact and there so it is deffo the computer.

Any Ideas ?

Help and System Restore - do you mean that they open blank windows? If so click here

Otherwise, Start, Run, type in

C:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

and click OK to launch SR. This will only restore Windows system files.
