I think this all started when I downloaded a service pak update - now I can't even access my files.
the HP Pavilion 533c did not come with the xp install cd. there was some sort of class action suit which ultimately provided me with an 8 disk recovery package, however that will completely wipe out my C: drive.
Is there any way I can repair this without losing my files? I have made several attempts at a system restore - but it does not correct the problem.
I'd appreciate some help. Thank you.
