when starting up windows me the error message "cannot find system.ini" came up so i restored to yesterdays file using scanreg /restore. now when i startup the system just hangs with no desktop icons or start menu/taskbar. pressing ctrl+alt+delete brings up task manager with no processes running, the same happens weather booted in safe mode or normal.
i have spent most of the day using search engines to find possible fixes and everything that has worked for others in the past doesnt seem to be working for me
i would completly re-format and start again but i need to get at my e-mails and addresses first. any ideas or help would be apprciated
thanks for reading
