Sounds like there are some really knowledgeable folks here from the posts I've read. My son gave me a Sony Vaio, P4 super fast computer. He did not give me the original boot discs, etc. It came with XP pre-installed, and I wiped it clean in August, not restore, but another tool that takes the main drive back to factory installed configuration. I am having trouble with programs, word perfect is giving me errors, it tries to re-install then gives me error:
cannot find file DOCUME~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp\WORDP\
error 1706 fatl error during installation.
Mozilla Firefox just dumped all my bookmarks, toolbars, etc one day. Had to re-install it.
Veritas Software CD program randomly tries to install itself if I am trying to install a new program.
I have run Norton everything, no virus or other problem I can find. Also a number of fix-it utilities (registry mechanic, PC rescue)
I probably deleted something as I was cleaning.
So I need help. I want to take my C drive back to original settings. I have the startup discs I made just after my last start-over, but they keeo asking for a second CD. Have no idea what it wants, but I don't have it.
