Windows 2000 Pro games (solitaire, minesweeper, etc) disappeared from startup... admin tools folder empty... disk defrag gone
Posted on 2003-03-15
Here's what I did. I logged in as administrator and copied my "kenya marlow (that's me)" user profile over top of the "all users" user profile. I guess this was a big mistake because now half of my programs in the start menu are missing. I have no more windows games (minesweeper, solitaire, etc...) My administrative tools folder is completely empty. I try to run my Norton Virus System Scan and it gives me this script error: Line:932 Char:8 Unspecified error... Code:0 URL: res://C:\progra~1\norton~1\navui.dll/navstats.htm ... do you want to continue running scripts on this page?
After this message, my scan will not perform.
I have noticed that all of my Windows\system files are no longer there, but I did find them located in C:\Winnt\System32 ... my games are now located in that folder, but like I said they are no longer in the start menu under accessories... I have also lost my disk defrag
One more thing... ever since I bought this pc, I have had the following error at times: C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\KB16.COM SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\VirtualDeviceDrivers.VDD.Virtual Device Driver format in the registry is invalid. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.
What have I done? Are these problems fixable?
Here are my pc specs:
Dell Dimension 4400
512mb DDR Ram
120gb hard drive
Please let me know if there's any more info you need.
