I have had the comp shut down now 4 times, getting different error messages on a blue screen each time. Here are the messages I'm getting that I've written down so far:
TraceAPI.DLL was not found
ZCfg.Svc.exe-corrupt file-Run chkdsk
Can someone here help me and give me the dummy's version of what to do next? Also---I've never backed up any files and would love instructions on how to do that before this old thing completely collapses into a pile of electronic jelly before my eyes!
Thanks to all and Merry Christmas!
