on wednesday my comp. would not start got the message windows\system32\config\software missing or corupt. eventullay got it started of the XP disc and carried out the repair as I have seen on this helproom forms.only problem is it created a new user account so my old office 2000 drivers etc.are on the other account and i cant access them. aftre a while i have manage to get my documents copied over to the new accountand reistalled the drivers my comp. is working at the moment but i still cant get my old address book and e-mails over. isee on the post from davehyde yesterday he was asking something about outlook i was wondering if i coppied my local settings over if this would bring them back. i have found these .pst files that was in davehyde post but do i need to copy more then them to get ever thing work
what did i do wrong for this to hapen in the repair i have also lost the two arrows next to the clock instead there was a keyboard which i have manage to get rid of it was also confirgured to US settings but i hve manage to change them. as you will gather i am a novice at this so if any one can help please keep it simple. also should i scrub them all out and start again with the XP disc. i have 40 g hard drive.
ams 4127 no my computer started up ok after 40 minutes of repairing or reinstalling xp only problem is lossing all my files. i should also have said i installed the service pack 1 which started up no bother after install.
