Recently the chdsk function ran on my PC and showed a message "Replacing Invalid Security ID with Default Security ID" on a lot of files, about 380k.
Now, on reboot (even in Safe mode), I get the mouse pointer on a BSOD with no control at all.
I've managed to use the Dell Reinstallation DVD to get a command prompt up and I can see all drives and files are where they should be, everything is in order and there is no HDD fault or
hardware issue. Assuming this check disk has caused a ACL corruption issue somewhere, can I fix it given I've got the command prompt? If so, how?
Alternatively, if I reinstall Vista from the Dell 'Reinstallation DVD Windows Vista" disk I have, will it leave my data where it is?
Any ideas would be very helpful...
