Im on windows xp home.
Well, nothing seems to be workin, it wont defrag, it wont do a disk check , nothin will load up exept from firefox and a few other things, i cant install anything, i cant even click on c drive it says access denied or i get the error message 'Windows cannot find 'recycler/s-2-9-50-1000029363-100026996-4265.com. make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again'. I have tried everything i can think of but i cant run any of my virus or spyware software etc, it did allow me to run antivir xp but it didnt help, i also tried to do a system resore but it wont allow this either , i click next and nothing happens.
Also on startup i get the error missing boot.ini file booting from c:/windows. Do you think this could be anything to do with it? i have instruction on how to fix that but do not have an xp disc , the pc has recently had a new hard drive and it was like that when i got it back but everything was workin fine
Any ideas anyone? be greatly appreciated
