What happened: Hard drive crashed or was infected.
It would load to the blue screen and beep and then try to reload... blue screen and reload..
Hoping I had not lost everything, I tried a reinstall of the same operating system. When finished, there was nothing there, or that I could see...
I started to install some of my programs and got a warning saying that it would erase the last installed!!????
I quickly went to c drive and opened the program files.. and this is where it get's strange. I have all my programs on there. I can pull up my desktop from before the melt down. Some programs even run, most do not. There is not two program files.. just one. wow!
My question is how do I get the same OS to recognize the programs that are on the C drive..?? I really don't want to have to re install all of the software.. it would take a day!!! need to be working. Deadline tomorrow.
