Hi,
You cannot delete windows just like this.You will have to use windows xp cd.and after booting from cd you will have to format the disk and install xp again.one more thing you should not delete any windows xp system files to create space.

My windows crashed after surfing the net. It started with a certain file: wmisrdp.exe want to do a download in a hidden way as told to me by my anti virus.. Even after clicking on TERMINATE, Quarantine it...


Click start menu then click search. After that when the search wizard is displayed, click all files and documents with that green arrow. When you click that, drive will appear below then choose, drive you want to search. when that runs normally with the search, try to open on My computer then click second partition hard drive to access to your files and folders.
Thanks.

Registry file corrupted after chkdsk /f


all your old files should be in windows.old so you should be able to rescue any pics and music, documents etc.
i might add there is a standalone rescue cd you can make... do a google for vista rescue disk to find it.
In your case i would suggest at this point to save all the files in the .old folder that you want to keep.... and reinstall vista ... use the complete format option but only after you back up the files.

After i have reinstalled windows, i have a problem


you should have formatted the drive first before you installed windows. But then you need all of the software drivers. XP is good, but not that good with drivers.
The files you are looking for will not be in add and remove.

Unable to completely restart windows vista home b


If this is a name brand system, you would need to use either the restore CD/DVD that came with the computer or the restore partition on the hard drive that can usually be accessed by hitting something like F12 (depends on your computer). It sounds like you already reinstalled so the restore partition is out of the question. If you don't have the restore CD/DVD, you may be able to order it from your computer manufacturer. Other than that, you will need the installation disks/files to restore everything.

Windows 98 install


It could be a memory related problem. Try to test your memory module by installing it to a different system that is surely working. If that system restarts, then you must replace the memory module.
