I've been trying to get input from forums across the web about my problem, but so far I've had no help at all. It all started yesterday when I restarted my computer and explorer.exe would start up, then close within 10 seconds of being open. I had to do everything through run or cmd and nothing proved to solve my issue. I took one of my friend's advice (he works at the local bestbuy as a computer tech), and he told me to go get SP2 from the microsoft website and install it to try to overwrite the explorer.exe. Everything goes over well, and then I restart my computer....
So, I'm restarting my computer, giddy with excitement, when without warning I blue screen on the Windows XP loading screen. This has happened before and the only way I've fixed it was formatting, and I'm not going to do it again. The blue screen flashes very fast before my computer restarts itself and trys to load up windows again.
Now I'll give you some information in hopes of fixing my problem, please feel free to give me things to try!
1) I DO NOT have my Windows XP discs. The Computer is an HP and did not come with the disks.
2) I have ran a chkdsk /r and I'm getting the same errors.
3) I have Hirens Boot CD on my flash drive which is currently plugged in, I just want to know how to access it via a command line etc.
4) I'm looking to not lose my data.... please guys, try your hardest!
Thank you very much for your time, I understand you all are very busy and I appreciate any help I can get!
I'll be waiting!
