This is Greek to me! "Set to boot"...lol...
I'm sure you're thinking right about now that some people in this world just shouldn't have a computer.
I printed everything and will try....I have no clue what I'm doing.
Thank you Keith..wish me luck

It turned out that I didn't have to go through all those steps afterall. While I was trying to figure out the instructions to boot from my XP cd I somehow ended up in safe mode. I typed in the %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe just for the heck of it under my name rather than administrator and it worked!!
I restored my computer back to a previous date and all my files came back (whew!)
I am now afraid of installing the Norton Internet Security 2006 again because that's how all this started.
When I go to install the Norton 2006 again should I remove or uninstall 2005 first?
The directions given are very vague and very hard to understand if you're new to computers.
Oh....I'm sorry...can I ask you the Norton question here or should I ask that in another forum?
thank you again

Good news about system restore

Well everything was fine and dandy with the restore. So I uninstalled Norton 2005 and installed 2006 and guess what..the same thing happened it wiped everything out of my computer. So I thought "no problem" I will go back into safe mode with command prompt and type in what you gave me before:
I hit enter...and the restore window appeared but now instead of it having a calender in it it is totally EMPTY
it's just a big white empty box!!!
I am about to throw this computer and Norton internet security (which I paid upwards of 50 bucks for !) out
Do you have any idea why this doesn't work now and it worked fine before?
I tried it under not only my name but administrator as well just to be sure.

Alternatively, you could run the repair, use add / remove to uninstall norton 2006, use their removal tool, then consider whether a combination of Zone Alarm free and AVG free will cover your PC as well, and with a lot less bother
