    have you tried doing a system restore to like the day before the crash or something?

    sounds very weird... but windows does sometimes revert to a basic desktop on recovery...

    what file system are you running? I'd be a surprised if you got corruption running ntfs.

    Well, I can only suggest that you make the transition to ntfs. System restore can only do so much... corruption takes a heavy toll sometimes.

    I've been running the same installtion for over 6 months now... on many occasions (50 at least) I've had to do a manual reset because I couldn't properly shutdown. Sometimes chkdsk will run but I haven't lost one byte of data. I'm absolutely sold on ntfs.
