Help please! I have a dual problem.
I had Windows 2000. Recently, I installed a popular spyware-removal program and cleaned the PC. The desktop became inactive after I exited program. I shut down PC through alt-ctrl-del. Now if I start the PC. the booting takes place only upto 'Windows Starting....', the blocks get filled up and then the Computer shuts down, and then restarts. This keeps on happening endlessly. It did not respond to any of the choices of starting with 'F8'- it simply continues to shut down and restart. The system info with 'F10' showed 'HD 10 GB; RAM 128 MB'.
Since the data on HD is important, I removed the HD. Then by removing the jumper, I put it as slave HD in another PC with Win 98. This second PC starts as Win 98 system; Its BIOS/CMOS recognises second PC HD as 'Primary Master', and the 10 GB HD as 'Primary Slave'. But 'My computer'and 'Windows Explorer' do not show this slave drive. Currently this PC has (1)Two HDs (2)One FDD (3)One CD Rom and (4)One CD Burner.
What do I do to recover the data?)
