Hey everyone, thank you in advance for any help I can get. I'm a semi smart computer guy with some knowledge of computers, but am absolutely stuck!
A few days ago I was infected with what seemed to be a virus giving me a blue screen. I decided after several days of searching and discussing that my best option was to reinstall windows XP on my laptop. I dug up my Windows disk, and installed Windows XP thinking this would clear up problems and help me start anew.
After I installed XP, my computer booted up into the new XP just fine. I was under the impression that all of my old files and settings and everything would be lost and I'd work from there. However, when I open up C:\ all of my old files are still there, and viewable. Programs in fact open up just the same without a problem.
I'm wondering if there is a way to bring back my computer now that I have XP up and running the same as it was before, with all the loaded programs and all ready to use in ALL PROGRAMS for instance. I also use wireless internet with the card built into my laptop, but now with the new windows XP install...nothing comes up except for the recycle bin. Nothing else is available on my startup. Sorry if this is a little confusing, but please any help would be immensly appreciated. THANK YOU!
