Okay, hopefully someone can help me. My problem is with my windows xp hp pc. It's relatively new, but a lot of things have been corrupted I believe, because they cannot open--including things i have installed from other cds, not windows related. I dont know many technical terms and such, but I have been considering just hitting f10 when I start up my computer to get to the windows recovery system console and try to fix the holes in my computer...but I dont want to lose my microsoft word files or games or any other such things if this reboots everything from the start. Please tell me what i need to do, and if I'm looking at the right thing at all!! I need help asap!

thanks a million you guys,

I think it would be helpful if you are a little more specific on what is happening. For example - when you try to open what program and what exactly happens? Are you getting any error messages? Have you scanned your system for Virus/malware?

But, even before that, you seem to have files that are important to you, so you should definately back them up or copy them to a CD or flash drive or whatever you have available.


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
