a Microsoft Windows Vista Escalation Support Professional told me to reinstall my windows vista because i had some conflicts with some programs. Weird all was fine until I tries to download Windows Mobile Center. It would not install and the automatic updates tried like 30 times and fail every time. So the Microsoft Windows Vista Escalation Support Professional wanted copies of C:\Windows\inf\setupapi.app.log and
C:\Windows\inf\setupapi.dev.log. sent them to him and thats why he wanted me to reinstall windows from my disk, but he warned first to backup my files. so i backed them up to another hard drive i have on my computer and reinstalled windows. So there is nothing on my new windows, but the window mobile worked. Then I go to restore my backed up files and it says there are no backed up files. But i can go to the other hard drive and everything is there compressed in files named backed up files. So i try and unzip one or two hoping that the programs will when put back into their place they would work. Nope it did not work there are no installations or .exe files in with them
