As a result of a nasty set of viruses I had to repair my Windows XP Pro installation. After the first time I did it, I still had problems and the only way that I was able to proceed was to repair Windows XP again. After that I had problems, not as severe, and I repaired once again. After all of this I was able to finally get things sorted out and now everything seems to be working OK (except for Windows Update KB956390 - but that's another issue).
Now I have multiple copies of XP on my machine and I would like to tidy things up. How do I figure out which copies of XP need to be removed and do I simply delete them or is there a process that I need to go through. Obviously I don't want my Registry carrying a lot of extra baggage so I want to do it correctly.
One other problem that I need to look into is my disks - originally I had a C, D, E drive. The C and E were on one hard drive and the E was a separate hard drive. Now I only seem to have a C and a D - the two separate hard drives. It seems that my second partition on the C drive has disappeared. Not a problem regarding loss of data but it would be nice to get that partition back.
Comments, suggestions and ideas are welcomed! Thanks.
