    If SYS files were deleted, you wouldn't be able to boot. I would take PCCONSULATE's advice and try the SAFE MODE option first. Otherwise, you'll have to find some other way to access the system or reload it.

    Can't give out information on this subject as it would be a violation of the EULA (End Users Licensing Agreement) from MS and border on hacking.

Boot a LiveCD of any sort and use it to undelete the files, or use the filesystem log (ext3 filesystem, xfs, etc.) to undo that activity. WinXP is near EOL and the lawful exploits for compatibility are permitted per Patriot Act, if you care about that.
I hope your relationship's all right, but I'd parry if she started walking around with a scalpel.

I don't know who set the password. I Someone had to do it. It could have been the result of a hacking, but I agree that that is what has happened.

NEED TO KNOW HOW I CAN PREVENT BACKUP FILES FROM GOING INTO MY RECOVERY(D), AND FILLING IT UP. I AM RECEIVING MESSAGE THAT I HAVE LOW DISK SPACE IN RECOVERY DISK. HOW DO I FREE UP THIS SPACE, AND HOW


Are you sure the files are going in there? Many times the manufacturers only allocate the size that they need partitioned on that drive. I have seen many cases where that drive is full from factory and people always get that message.

  1. Click Start c01508537.gif and right-click Computer .
  2. Select Properties .
  3. Click System Protection from the left side of the Window.
  4. In the section "Automatic restore points", remove the selection next to the D: drive, and then click OK . If the D: drive was not selected, close this window. Figure 3: System Protection tab with D: drive unselected
    c01556005.jpg
  5. Right-click Start Explore All Users .
  6. Before you can remove the backup files and folders, you need to be able to view hidden system files as follows:
    1. From the explorer window press the Alt key on the keyboard to make the menu bar appear in the window.
    2. From the file menu, click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
    3. Select the View tab.
    4. Select Show hidden files and folders , remove the selection from Hide protected operating system files and then click OK .
  7. From the Folder Options window in explorer, double-click Recovery (D:) .
  8. If a Window opens stating "You don't currently have permission to access this folder" opens. Click Continue .
  9. If you previously copied or created any files into Recovery (D:) and you want to keep them, copy them to another drive - such as the C: drive.
  10. Find and delete any files that you previously copied onto the Recovery (D:) drive.
    CAUTION:Do not delete any files that are associated to recovery! Do not delete the items RECOVERY, $RECYCLE.BIN, boot, hp, PC-Doctor, pcdr, or PRELOAD! Doing so can prevent a future system recovery from the hard drive. If you are not sure, do not delete the file.
    Press Shift + Delete to permanently remove the files.
    To delete files created from MS Backup (MS Backup files are not recovery files), find and delete the folder with the same name as the computer name in the Recovery (D:) partition. For example if the computer name is BOB-PC, the folder containing the backup files would be named BOB-PC and would be deleted.
  11. Several confirmation windows open. Click Continue , and Yes until the folder is deleted.
  12. To set Windows Folder Options back to their original setting as follows:
    1. From the explorer window press Alt to view the file menu.
    2. Click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
    3. Select do not show hidden files and folders and select Hide protected operating system files .
    4. Click OK .
  13. Close explorer. The Out of Disk Space errors should no longer appear. If you would like to use the Microsoft Backup Tool again, open it and select a different external backup device to store the backup files on.

About a month ago I lost all my pictures, favorites and had to reload my Norton. Everything is still in the computer somewhere, only I don't know what happened or how to find and get them back. Please help...


You can often successfully recover deleted files from a PC, it all depends on what has happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that tells the system where the data for those files is located. The area containing the deleted data is also now marked as free space so it is available for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it is too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.

One of the easiest ways to see if you can recover deleted files is to try some good file recovery software. One I used to use is this data recovery program which you can download from site below

Windows could start because the following file is missing or corrupt: system 32/drivers/pci.sys

You can try repairing the installation of windows.

You need a windows installation disk or system recovery disk.
insert the disk in the CD/DVD RoM
boot your pc from the cd rom.
the system will prompted you repair , press r and then select the 1 or 2(most probably 1)
supply password of the administrator. if no password strike enter
Type: chkdsk /r then strike enter
the system will check and restore.
wait until completed.

If incase its a recovery disk:

boot your pc in the cd rom
the recovery disk you got to option;

either ; you partition and format the entire disk
or leave the current file only the system will be deleted and restore the new system( Something like that)

you have to decide either of the two option. you can try each option:


all of that will be corrected by installation of new windows: windows installation method is here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316941

There may be a Restore section on the hard drive. As I recall, you hit one of the function keys, like f12 or f11, while it's posting.

If you have an hp, compaq, or emachines, you can contact the company about a free replacement restore disk. Other OEM makers may help you out, too, if you can find a contact number.

If it's Dell, and you are the original buyer, same deal, if it's still under warranty. If not under warranty, they will charge you. If you are not the registered owner - good luck with that.

You can call MS with your hard luck story (or one more creative), and maybe, if you get a live person on the line, they will feel sorry for you and send you a complimentary disk (no kidding).

All these "free disks" cost about $25 for "shipping."

Pop up on computer says I have low disk space on hp-recovery(d) but I have nothing on that drive to get rid of


well..that's a drive that HP sets aside, as part of your c drive for recovery. you can back that up online, or elsewhere, and then wipe that part clean..if you like.. but be careful NOT to wipe the other side of the disk..

another approach, is to re partion the drive, but that's not something that I advise for just anyone.
