I know that Microsoft says that these two files are not that important anymore, but I just can't let go of the good old "DOS" days when these two files were GODS. My system is an HP Media Center PC and uses the new Windows XP multimedia OS (the exact name escapes me). Recently, I've been spending a lot of time creating DVD's, converting video formats and just seeing what this system will or will not do. Recently, I've been getting emails or viewing websites where a picture has been replaced with a red X inside a square. I had this problem before and it was a simple matter of changing a default in my browser. After investigating THIS incarnation I discoverd that my config.sys file is gone completely and my autoexec.bat file has been altered from the original by a program called "MUVEE" which took out my 'path' statement and everything else that was in it. "MUVEE" is some video editing software that came preinstalled and I no doubt fooled around with it some during one of my video making adventures. When it kidnapped my autoexec.bat file it did not make a backup of it, at least, not one that I can find. I'd love to just put both files back into the C:\ directory like they were before. Any ideas?
