I found jtech's log LDtate, however, unfortunately, this ones a "tuffy"



I had trouble getting rid of norton antivirus so i got into the registry and may have made things even worse. spy bot s&d removed several viruses but i'm at a loss as to fixing the mess, no text in yahoo messenger, no delete function in yahoo mail, blank screen for hotmail, no conection to windows update, no options for windows search(from the start menu,,, which also includes windows media player not functioning, these are the things i've found so far, could be more



Yahoo is, as is Hotmail, a webmail. So your email problems are stemming from Outlook. I also read that ran SFC is that correct? If so, and it didnt fix anything, the only other option may be to manually copy the files you need from the cd. That, however, is a tough task at best. You have to know which files you need, were to find them on the cd and were they go on the harddrive.

You might try this. You can use the repair console by booting with the Windows installation cd. When it asks "Press Any Key to Boot From CD".. do so. Navigate as if you were installing a fresh copy of Windows. The first Window/Menu you will get will ask you if you want to repair another installation of Windows, this is NOT the one you want. You want to keep navigating your way as if to install a new version of Windows. You should get this option again, to repair another version of Windows. If you get to the "Partitioning and Formatting" then the "Automatic Repair" is not an option. DO NOT CONTINUE this process as it will wipe everything clean and you will more than likely loose your data. It will give you the option to "Quit By Pressing F3". However, if you do get the option to repair one more time, then THIS is the time to choose to repair. Windows will repair itself automatically.
