I'm desperate and hoping for some help. My computer (running Windows ME) crashed recently, and after rebooting, most of my icons were gone. The real problem however, is that I cannot access the start menu (it just freezes when I attempt to) and there is nothing showing in the "My Computer" window when opened. As a result of this, I am unable to access any of my programs.
I have started the computer in safe mode, but still cannot access the start menu. The only thing I seem to be able to bring up is the search menu (using the F3 key).
I also tried booting the computer with the ME disk in it but nothing happened.
I have since bought a new computer, but I NEED to retrieve some files and pictures from my old hard drive. I can only access these files when in safe mode, and then only by searching.
3 things to keep in mind when answering my query; I am a novice computer user (go easy on me!), I cannot access the internet so downloading a fix will not help, and I do not have a boot floppy.
Anyone have any idea??
