I have had many issues with my Vista and this was the 4th time I have had to start fresh by reinstalling. This time the problem came after I tried to update ITunes to the newest version. When it finished I shut it down and restarted. Every time I clicked on IE8 it would pop up and shut down, and then it started saying "recovered tabs". And I was able to connect to the browser through Vista's welcome Center and I installed Google Chrome and IE9. Then still could not run any browsers. I went to safe mode and could connect just fine to teh the browsers though. But when I returned to normal mode it would not let me run the browsers. I tried to reinstall drivers, tried all the Vista back ups from previous versions but there were none there more than a day old. So I did a back up to a zip drive and restored after reinstalling Vista. Now I cannot find many of the documents and pictures that I had before.
I wonder if the back up did not back up "ALL files" as it was supposed to, or if the back up was unable to restore them for some reason??
