Prefetch data deleted

Hello zxcv196870, the best thing to do to recover / replace your [Prefetch Data] back on your Computer is to do a "System Restore." Follow these instructions carefully The first thing you want to do is click on the "Start Button," paul7of9_50.jpg from the Desktop.
  • Next, click on "All Programs," scroll to find "Accessories."
  • Now, select the "System Tools." paul7of9_51.jpg
  • You will see in the next window that opens, "System Restore."
  • "This is very important!
  • "Once you click on the System Restore "shortcut," it will start to look for the last known time of a change in your computer, ie; deleting [Prefetch Data].
  • The System restore can take as long as a 1/2 an hour to run; so be patient.
!Warning:"Do not try to do any type of work. Do not 'touch' the [Keyboard] for any reason."
  • Let the (Restore) run it's configurations.
  • Once the "System Restore" finds the correct "Date and Time" of the event?
  • Choose the Date closest to the time of the 'occurrence'. paul7of9_53.jpg
  • Now, once again, there will be a message telling you not to do anything with the computer.
  • The System Restore will 'run' for a while; so once again be patient. paul7of9_52.jpg
  • The computer will then "Shutdown and Restart.
  • " Lo-gin if you have to; but!
!Attention: Do not touch the Keyboard once the Desktop 'window' opens, because the {System Restore} is still running. Wait! Until there is a message letting you know the {Restore} of your System was successful! "I hope all goes well, please let me know by giving a "Helpful Rating. Thanks for using Fix'Ya, paul7of9"

Are certain restore disks interchangeable?

Unfortunately you cant use a vista restore disk for a XP operating system.

You could install vista on it and then use XP compatibility mode for whatever programs you want to run. Simply right click on the program and select the compatability tab..change to XP.
