Here is what happened first i wanted to delete some files from my
computer but they would not delete even after I did the restore thing
where you restore to a later date. So I did a non-destructive system
recovery, that did not work. So I did a full( destructive) sysytem
recovery. it deleted the files that I wanted to be deleted but it
also delete word, powerpoint, microsoft works and when i tried to
install one of my games it said i could not play because i did not
have the correct audio whatever.
So i looked on the internet for file recovery programs to get that
stuff back but that did not work. so I did another system recovery to
see if it will install the programs. but when the computer rebooted
it said that the system32 file was either corrupt of missing so I cant
load window XP.
So i called tech support and he said i needed a new hard drive. So I
wanted to know do I really need to get a new hard drive, is it cheaper
to put on in myself, or to get a whole new tower? and also if i do
get a new hard drive will I get the programs such as word, powerpoint,
cyberlink dvd player and so on install back on my computer or are
those programs lost forever? it would nice if someone could help me
with this problem because i am a college student and i cant live or do
school work without a computer.
