I didn't delete the other one........cause it just caused problems.........see about 4 years ago my daughter crashed my computer and I restored it by installing Windows XP pro .....it had NT before......I think what happened was that the guy that did it didn't do it right........he started the install and didn't complete it........then he made a partition and loaded it again.......I think that is why it shows to OS one is a complete one and the other is a partial.....it get only to a blue screen that says insert XP pro disc to complete setup......you think that may be why when I deleted the Xp setup one it cause it not to be able to load the internet explorer? I really don't know but am open to any suggestions.........I do know that when he did set it up I lost like 25% of my hard drive.......I'm guessing due to the other operating system..........am open to anything or I can just leave it this way if there is no solution to the fix (getting rid of the other operating system without loosing anything (files, internet, ect.)

Thats correct, unfortunately I went to bed prior to you posting..
........I just made the "windows xp pro" the default OS
The only way I can see of clearing out that mess is to backup all your data - reformat the drive and then re-install. This would probably take four or five hours, plus you would then need to download and install all the updates. I don't think a drive image would work because it would still carry the corrupt install data. But I am no expert, if you go to the XP forum they will know a lot better than I .
Apart from that how is the system now ? System one still ok ?

system one is good also.......no problems
It would be good to start with a clean OS...drive.....but like you said I would have to back up everything on the main drive and then I would have to reload everything (software and updates) not sure how easy that is....I will look on the xp forum...I have three hard drives, two internal and one external: main is an 80g.
Again thanks for everything and if something pops up between now and the weekend I will let you know.

You should end up with a system that is lean and clean

I don't think I still have my Windows XP Pro disc anymore....or I should say I don't know where it is anymore.
But from you instructions on the other software that I downloaded I can just get the key by running them.
Most of my files have been transfered already in case it did ever crash.
When I redo the XP Pro will it only clear the C:\drive or will it clear all three drives?
