I had a virus I could not clean. (W32.crypt I think it is) I backed up everything to a external hd, and tried to do a system recovery. It got to 48% and I got a error message.
I tried to recover twice. Now the files are gone from the HD and the recovery disk won't go through. I tried the Kapersky recovery but no help there...
I am trying to use the recovery disks that were made from my computer when I first purchased it. I used them a couple of years ago and it all worked fine.
I did a HP back up to a external drive and then tried to restore to original factory settings. It was fine until it reaches 48% complete and then error (# previous stated)... I ran equipment check and all hardware tested ok. I have tried several times with same result. I tried kapersky rescue disk and no help there either.
Any advice, I thought about upgrading to windows 7 64 bit. I have vista 32 bit. can I run 64 bit windows 7, if I buy the full version of windows 7 64 bit?
PLEASE HELP....Thanks in advance. Cmax
