Apart from the Backup problem, I have a reinstal problem with ME.
I thought the problem might be linked with something missing in the operating system so I attempted to reload ME over the top of the existing.
I cleared everything as usual via Ctrl/Alt/Del and switched off all Norton stuff before starting the load but cannot get any further than the end of the emergency disc copy when I'm confronted with a box "Finish" meaning to start downloading the ME files. After the freeze up I have to get out by C/A/D and selecting "SUWIN".
Before all this, I have run CheckcIt and no problems exist. I run Norton Clean Sweep and Disc Doctor and not problems there. And for good luck, I go through a clean up routine with IOLA System Mechanic and that tells me I have no problems.
Someone's telling 'porkies' !!
What am I to do because the thought crossed my mind that I should buy XP and load that but not perhaps if the problem exists in the existing hard or software.
