This is a little bit lenghtly so please bear with me. Two weeks ago, I have cut on my Compaq computer to make some beats and a screen came up and said that my nt32.exe file was missing or corrupted, so I can not boot up windows xp. It ask me for the set-up (recovery) disk which I found today. As I put in the disc, it gives me four options. I tried to save my hard drive but my space is too small and the other option is to completely wipe out the whole hard drive . My first question is what can I do to get my system back up and running for my Compaq computer with Windows XP.
Second, I took that same hard drive out of the computer and made it a slave (F Drive) onto my Powerspec computer to see if I can transfer the files over so I can erase that hard drive and start over. I ran three anti-spyware and virus programs and the drive is clear of bad things However, the files I want is in a folder that has a password protection on it . I know the password but I can't pull up that option. My second question is... is there a way for me to access the folder I need on my slave drive to save my files?
