Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
I initially backed up my system onto external HD and then activated HP Restore Plus CD for restore. I then reinstalled Operating System. this solved my 'Ethernet' problem and allowed me to access the internet but when I did Restore using the restore wizard I got mostly shortcuts to my desktop which have no exe files. The files are not listed on my 'Add or Remove Programs' screen. I attemped to redownload from both the web and CDs but I can't download. I get an error message when clicking on 'Setup', 'error opening installation log file. Verify that the specified log file location exists and is writeable'. From the web the download just doesn't happen. I am stumped!
The windows backup feature does not back up any installed programs , it would only backup up your data files , but no exe files. But you are not able to install a fresh copy of the programs over the internet and from the cd.
Try installing these programs from in safe mode of windows . To start the computer you need to press the F8 key a couple of times before windows starts up.
If the same is not working you need to redo the operating system once again
