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...

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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
