all my programs dissapeared
Posted on 2003-10-30
I booted my computer this morning, saw an error message and the blue screen of death, and then discovered that all of my programs had been uninstalled. ( everything that didn't come with windows, paint and notepad are still there but everything else is gone ) :?
I've no clue what happened. It took my drivers with it, whatever It was, and my last working cd drive is no longer working. ( This I discovered when trying to back up my documents, which were strangely enough entirely undisturbed, whenever a cd is loaded the computer freezes ( and does not thaw. )
If the cd drive insn't working, I can't do a clean reinstall, can't reinstall any of my programs, and am rendered computer-less.
I couldn't even come online using that computer, because Internet Explorer is gone too, as is aol and opera.
I am using windows 98se. Help anyone ?
