Yes I clicked "Restore my computer to an earlier date" and I've tried it twice more today and that makes 5 unsuccesful times I've tried to restore to an earlier date.

i would currently avoid uninstalling spybot as it may take those backkups with it (i know they aren't working right this second...but that may change)

do you have your xp cd? (or access to an xp cd?)

No *Sigh* I was actually getting ready to start a new thread about that. I was going to reformat the computer and start from clean slate but guess WHAT...NO CD's. :whistling: :blink:

I'm googling to see if there are any possible ways to reformat without CD's but I pretty much know the answer to that. I think I'm honestly screwed.

depending on the make and model of the comuter there may be a way to do a destructive recovery (return to factory settings...you'll lose everything) without disks...what make and model is the pc?

according to hp support (i love using their chat deal..when it works)....your system should have a recovery partition...

if you're at a point where you're just ready to wipe everything and start over

during boot up continually press shift + f10.. this should bring up some recovery options (i don't know which options it will bring up..but)...if you see one to repair while leaving your file system intact...choose that one...as that will leave all your files but replace windows...if you don't see that...you'll have to do the "destructive recovery" option..

Alright great. Well I probably won't be able to do this today, I've got to compress and email all of my picture files and burn my music files and that will take probably a day or two :/.
