After booting on the XP cd and trying to reinstall/repair my corrupted XP home installation I gave up and called Microsoft. I might add, it got hung up on registering components and took almost two hours to run.
Bottom line, in exasperation I called Microsoft, and after four hours on the phone, Microsofts only solution is install another operating system on the existing partition in a different folder. This did save my data and programs, however I would like to run the programs.
Here's my question. Are there any utilities or tools that will transfer the programs from my corrupteed XP installation to the newly installed one on the same machine?
