I'm running an HP computer with Windows XP Home Edition. Short story, it got so inundate with viruses and registry errors that I decided to do a system recovery to roll it back to factory settings. (I backed up all the files I didn't want to lose to an external hard drive.)
As HP computers all have these days, mine has a partition drive it uses for running system recovery, which is what I'm using to run system recovery (not discs).
So I started system recovery (destructive, i.e. full system recovery) and at 9% it pops up with a window that says such and such a file "cannot be recovered" so hit "OK" and it comes up with a different file, I hit OK, and the same thing keeps happening. Various files "cannot be recovered. Files like "VB.dll" and then some rather long and nonsensical names as well.
I'm guessing this is unusual. What can/should I do?
