    so i was trying to make ms-dos an available operating system on my computer, and i fucked it up pretty good, so good it wouldn't start. the windows 98 startup disk wasn't very useful, so i took my computer to a repair place. they reformatted the hard drive, reinstalled windows xp, and backed up (most of) the data. that cost a hundred dollars and left me with one less partition on my hard drive, a brand new bare looking desktop, and a couple big folders, in which the .exe files have not worked so far, nor have i found my 1.5 gig music folder.

    Fuck i had this happen to me once, i went insane reinstalling windows over and over again.

    What you want to do is back up everything you want to save, then format ALL the partitions and reinstall windows.

    That's fucked up, you know there were some jokers working at that place like me that were like, hahaha wow.... watch this.... delete.


    Nah... I'd never do that, but you should've asked someone who knew the deal first before you tried to venture into something like that on your own.

    yes dirty habit, i wish i would have done that.


    here is the problem that i think needs priority: i think my computer still has viruses on it, one of them being the msblaster worm. one of the things that keeps happening, is when i try to download something, my computer disconnects from the internet. this tells me i need to run an antivirus program before i begin replacing my programs.norton antivirus is in the folder of stuff that was restored. "norton antivirus" consists of a folder containing a bunch of files, a few of them being .exe files. i double clicked and right click>opened each one, and nothing happens. i haven't been able to download files using internet explorer 80% of the time. i don't have any anti virus programs on disks. what should i do ?

    if they formatted your drive of course you arent going to find your music files, they were lost in the format.

    did you really pay 100$ to have you drive formatted and xp reinstalled? im in the wrong business.

    they backed up the data, or most of it anyway. they charge forty dollars an hour.

    Hey, if you got your computer back formatted, with a virus.... I'd raise hades with those mother fuckers. What idiot backs up programs that need other files in the windows directory to work...?. who gives a fuck about the exe's if they don't have the libraries that were deleted..... also, if they could back those up, they could've saved your music.

    I'd say go get your money back or else you'll run their name through the mud, although don't make threats right off.... but, rather, as a last resort.

    to stop your computer from shutting down when the error message pops up, go to: START>RUN> then type "shutdown -a" and hit enter.. that stops the machine from shutting down.... used to happen to me all the time, get all the service paks and security updates.
