I have an 75 & 20 gig hard drive on my computer. I had been running my OS on the 75, and using the 20 for backups as well as for files I wanted to save and didn't want to lose in case of a OS crash, or deciding to format/reinstall. Anyway, ran out of room on the 20. So I decided to partition the 75 into a 25 for my OS and programs, a 50 for saved files, and leave the 20 for backups (it is a slower SCSI hard drive, I don't want to use it for anything other than backups). Now to the problem, I installed Windows XP onto the new partitioned 25 gig drive, and I'm having nothing but problems. All kinds of programs are unstable, and shut down for no apparent reason. Freshly installed programs don't run. Programs don't install (I can't get Adobe reader to install for the life of me). I have tried to download files (adobe reader among others) to reinstall with a fresh copy, and the downloads are corrupt. Only about 1 out of 20 downloads are any good. I ran a diskcheck, and had it fix any errors. I reformatted the new partition, reinstalled again, ran a diskcheck, updated, and still have the same problems. Windows is completely updated (to the current sp2 build) as are all the programs I am trying to run/install. I'm lost.....HELP!!!!
