I dont have help for you but listen up..... i did do a complete recovery and totally messed my computer up by doing that. Be very careful. My puter desktop is like 6 yrs old..with XP of course and i never had any major issues till i downloaded the IE beta 8 then about a week later kept getting an error messege on every page i went to. It got to where i couldnt do anything. Then i tried doing a system restore and there was no restore points. My last resort , to which thats why its there was to do a complete restore. well guess what? My puter is in the shop. My Hp ( from what i have researched HP was very notorious for that in older puters like mine) didnt come with a recovery disc and i did (with 6 discs it took) a back up when i first got it but they didnt work either. My puter after system restore was as if i just took it right out of the box and i lost all my Microsoft updates. It wouldnt read that i had any Microsoft anything and it would say error could not findwhen i would try and down load it though Microsoft . So I just bought a good 8 gb flash drive and put anything that was important on it and bought a new Toshiba laptop with Vista and transfered them to it. Sometimes i wonder if anything that says beta is worth it. Maybe on brand new puters but nothing that is older. Sometimes older puters from what i feel i know just wont deal and hold this new stuff. And most beta anything is stiil in experimental stage. We are the guina pigs for it. If you have a disc that came with your puter your lucker than i was, but if you dont i would careful think of what to do and get help in what do before doing anything. Im having issues already with my Toshiba latop with a error...its like good lord what now? ITS 1 MONTH OLD.
Good Luck and may the force be with you.
