OK, so my PC freezes while encoding some video (at least that was one of the things it was doing) and then unfreezes. First thing that I notice is that my quick launch icons are gone, so I go ok, hmmm, I'll restart my PC. Do so, while booting, the message "File boot.ini not found; Booting from C:\Windows" or something similair appears (it comes up each time I boot now). I'm pretty worried now. Just imagine me when I go into "All Programs" and find that only a few programs are there. Another thing I find out is that all my bookmarks are gone in Firefox and Flock (which I was using for the first time when this happened). Also, I open up Adobe Premiere Pro and find out that all the "Recent Projects" are gone, not the actual files themselves, just the shortcuts. The Microsoft Office 2003 Pro suite has had to install itself when I used the programs for the first time after this happened. I'm guessing that all the programs were set back to default and first-run (Firefox showed "Welcome to Firefox" or whatever it says the first time you use it). Could anyone help??? I'm dying here... I'm pretty good at PC's but still, I'm only 14. If it helps:
- Win XP Home (SP2)
- AMD Athlon 64-bit 3200+
- Albatron K8X800 ProII
- 2x WD 200GB SATA (RAID 0)
I think thats all the parts you need to know about. I built it so I can't exactly give you a make of PC.
Thanks in advance for any help!
