OK...back to business. XP is up and running...it did not delete my other files and I was able to bring over my Docs, pics, music etc...from my backup back to the main drive. The XP (auto file transfer/backup bolloksed up though...the file is corrupted...so my favorites, emails, contacts, ISP setup etc...is fucked up).
I can recover most of that time-permitting.
All of my software is still present though XP doesn't know that its there... they're not listed in the 'my programs'. I guess that I have to reload.
I'm worried about reloading my Palm desktop software quickly enough. My Palm's got all my contacts on it and can go back to Outlook directly (saving me hours of work)...but the batteries are dying on the Palm. Got to get that software up and going quickly.
My Symantec AV2005 is fucking up and I don't know why. It fails the install over and over again. I can't/won't go online without a firewall/AV... I had to do it to get one file that I had uploaded to Yahoo...and when I disconnected, Adaware found 288 instances of spyware, etc... All in 5 mins!
