i don't much care for you
I just did a system recovery on my computer.... did I lose everything? if not, where the hell is it all?
only problem with that approach is almost all the newer programs install half their settings in the windows folder and thus if you reload the OS partition you have to reload the app from scratch as well.What you need to do for next time is have a 5-10GB partition for windows, then use whatevers left as a program partition. I've been doing that for years, going from XP to Vista to Linux visa versa.
thats quite common actually. each profile has a reg file in addition to the computer's master reg file. alot of malware will try and modify the user reg file and corrupt it in the process. Sometimes you can logon in safe mode and fix the issue or delete the profile and create a new one.before i did the recovery, i detected a malware i could not get rid of.... then it locked up last night. this morning when i tried to boot up and log into my username it told me it could not detect my profile settings.
Yeah it has it's Pro's and cons, BUT I use a program called Deepfreeze which is awesome against malware and viruses. All you gotta do if you get a virus is reboot your computer, and it disappears!:beerbang:only problem with that approach is almost all the newer programs install half their settings in the windows folder and thus if you reload the OS partition you have to reload the app from scratch as well.
Then again, most newer programs also default save data to your my doc profile folder so you could use a backup program to simply backup your profile to another drive/partition. This is what I do. 1.35TB primary partition :woot:
Thanks for your insight. your advice combined with another 50 cents i could make a call from a payphone. :stan3:i would get a new PC if i was you. something in the 2008s year :tonka:
Please dont tell me your using Windows 98 oke:Thanks for your insight. your advice combined with another 50 cents i could make a call from a payphone. :stan3:
it is actually a computer bought after vista came out.....but like most intelligent people i didnt want vista.
vista, (much like your token of knowledge) is useless and usually creates more problems than it solves.
i am usually very good with computers. i used to build them for christs sake...but this is apparently above my head
