I get to the desktop, though it's blank. There ARE programs in the system tray, I can use programs.
I can even get on the 'net. I use the search box to start what programs I remember. Like notepad, chrome, etc.
But when I explore the drive, there's nothing there to explore. I have two files there (one of which I created tonight). BOOTSECT.BAK and (the one I created tonight) bcd_backup
When I do an AVG scan, it finds nothing, but I see it going through all the files on the disk, so I know they are still "there"
I'm using the computer now, to write this (using chrome).
I've tried cmd and from a command window, went to c:\ dir and there was the same two files there. However, I can change directories to other directories I know are there. However, dir shows me nothing. I did however get a dir listing in \windows. Shows me 17 files and 5 directories.
In computer management, Storage > Disk Management, I have the C: listed, status is Heathy (system, boot, page file, active, crash dump, primary partition)
I've put in the Vista Home Premium install disk and rebooted, went to the repair option, but says there's nothing to repair.
I'm really at a loss here, everything seems to be pointing to the fact that the OS is healthy, when obviously it is not.
