When l am at my wits end l activate the System restore
which you have on your xp hope you can at least finish what you are doing for now. If you have a problem finding this go to search on start up.
I don't know if this is the board I should be posting in, but here goes. I recently got a new Dell 4600i. It seems I've had nothing but problems with it, though I think it is the fault of the software, and not the computer itself. First of all, McAfee was installed and I use Norton. Didn't know I'd have a problem with having both installed at once, but I did. So I went to the McAfee site to find out how to uninstall it completely (Add/Remove left a lot behind). I went into the registry after making a back up and removed what it said to remove. However, I decided to remove the entire McAfee folder. While I was in there, I removed the Norton one too, as it hadn't installed completely. I figured this would give me a fresh start. I think now that I may have made a mistake. I hope I haven't damaged anything irreversibly. However, now when I open Internet Explorer, only certain pages will load. Hotmail will load the main page, but I can't sign in. I can't log on to my online classes page. I'm really frustrated and I don't know what to do. I tried to open the back up registry but there was an error message. Something like, the back up registry wasn't created completely, some keys are being used by your computer. Any help anyone can give would be much appreciated. I am going nuts. Thanks.
