So I got this new computer, a Dell with Windows XP Pro (maybe?). Anyways, I was looking for Windows Movie Maker and I couldn't find it.. so I found an old c.d. that I had from my last computer.. it was a re-installation c.d. for Windows XP Professional. I loaded the disk and chose to selectively install the Accessories component of that operating system because that is where Movie Maker is.. as I'm told. So it did it's reboot and when through this crazy long re-installation process. When it was done.. yes, I had movie maker.. but everything else is jacked up and I want it back to the way it was. Now it seems as if my graphics suck.. my internet explorer icon, and I think a few others, are missing. And it seems like I'm zoomed in on everything.. nothing fits my screen without scrolling side to side. I went to system restore to change it back to the way it was but there is only one point where I can restore to.. and that's today AFTER I jacked it up. I bought the computer in December.. and the settings for restore are on to automatically restore. How come there aren't any other points to restore to? And is there another way to undo what I did? I don't have a disk for this operating system on this computer. I bought this computer off of Ebay and it came with an application/drivers/manuals CD but there are warning all over it not to use it because it voids your warranty.. I popped it into the drive to see what's on there and I don't see any kind of a re-installation of XP. I'm totally computer ignorant.. and I would soooooooo appreciate some help and feedback. I really want to fix my computer to where it was. I don't give a rats about movie maker now.
Thanks so much!!!
