Please could someone help me.
I had a problem with my old computer. I logged on about a week ago but my desktop stuff had gone all i had was my wallpaper. EXPLORER.EXE wasn't running and wouldn't run. I tried loads to fix it but i must have made it worse as my computer switched itself off.
I switched it on again but it got halfway through startup and restarted itself, this cycle just keeps repeating. It won't even load in safe mode.
Anyway i got annoyed and brought myself a new computer as i was thinking of getting one before this happened.
My question is can i somehow plug my old hard drive into my new computer and get some pics and music off it? My worry is that it may have been a virus causing it all and i don't want it infecting my new computer.
If i plug it in will it just read like another drive e.g. a floppy drive?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
ps: I've got a basic knowledge of computers but i'm not very good :-(
