for about 5 years the computer ran amazing. Then one day I decided to download a free spyware utility and did a scan. It found some offending files
and i clicked ok when asked if i wanted them removed.
on the very next bootup, the blue screen of death came accross the land.
safe mode didnt access itself
it became a constant loop
i did follow a couple of screens up to being asked to format the partition or something and i said no.
the error message if i remember said something like 'unmountable boot volume' ( i overheard once this aint a good one)
to lose all the files/data on that machine after 5 years ( and no backup !?!?!) would be a disaster. Please help.
Is there a way i can transfer those files onto a new hard drive at this point?
Is there any way to save any of it?
o and if someone knows why my avatar background only goes down like half way /gets cut off like that , pls let me know. Ive tried numerous images in
there and they all just stop short like that and wont go any further down like maybe to the signature level.
Any help would be greatly apreciated friends.
