My hard drive in my laptop was failing, so i used pcmover to move the settings to the new laptop computer, both run windows xp. At about 95% pcmover stopped and froze up, i could never get the old laptop working again so i pulled the drive and just cut and pasted my entire user directory from the old computer to the new one.
so everything from:
e:\documents and settings\user
c:\documents and settings\user
now when i login i cant make any changes to anything. so if i want to see hidden files i make the change say apply and nothing happens.
when i go to environment variables I get this error:
Cannot open USER environment is registry. possible registry corruption
Any ideas what i can do to get back up and running?
