Basically I was trying to restore my system defaults by using the Recovery DVD (at the time, this seemed like a good idea). I suppose it's installed whatever was on the recovery thing to my D Drive, and now it's full. I do believe I've royally screwed things up on the C drive, because after you pass the log-in screen it's going to a black screen with a dialogue box that says something about my Microsoft Office drivers, and it tried to load something for about 5 minutes before I gave up. Is there an easy way to transfer everything from the D to the C drive? Or should I just take this somewhere?
Also, are there directions to wiping a hard drive, but leaving the Op System? Ideally I'd like to have the computer back to how it was when I got it. I'm new at this, obviously.
I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1501 with Vista HomeBasic 2006.
