this is why programs like this are dangerous...one false move and WOOPS....you have absolutely no system disks whatsoever? is that because the computer didn't come with them or because you lost them? what kind of computer is it? how attached to your data and programs are you?

when I got the computer it was just that no disks or anything. I am pretty attached to my programs seeing as how I don't have anyway to reinstall them, (no disks) I just hopt there would be a way to unlock the secrecy file without having to go into windows. Like accesseing the program from dos or something
