Probably when u did the cloning some of the data got lost. It might have been some hidden files. I never used that software so i don't know if it does hidden files or not.
Wife's PC, built by me. AMD 2 GHz, 512 K RAM, 20 Gig HD, XP SP-1, upgraded to SP-2. Working perfectly. Because of her iPod 60 Gig she was running out of space. I had a Maxtor 80 Gig HD in a box. I attached it as slave, ran the MaxBlast clone program. Cloned. Set it as master, booted, perfect boot, XP didn't even want to activate. Nice. Surf, email, looks good behind my cable connection router. Share files, move them between my PC and hers, sharing and internet works as before.
But a few oddities.
While testing the system, System Restore won't work. I get the ''Error, please send an error report, blah, blah, etc.''
While testing Help, it doesn't know that it has an Internet connection.
Something has been lost.
I ran sfc /scannow from a DOS prompt and it asked for the XP CD, as normal, and it fixed a few files. Rebooted and the same problems as above.
I DO NOT want to do a full format and install because the XP CD is SP-1. Even with my 6 Mb/s cable connection it'll take forever to get all the updates not counting installing all the software.
