I ran Spybot today and casually clicked on Fix Problems when they told me they had found six things. I guess one of those 6 was critical, because after rebooting I was able to sign in and then not much else. My wallpaper came up and the mouse arrow and nothing else. I tried booting in safe mode and got the same result except minus the wallpaper. I tried going to task manager and running a new task, both sfc /scannow and msconfig. Both gave me messages that Windows could not open them as Windows did not know what programs created them. I am unsure how to go about restoring by using a System CD. When I do boot from my CD, I type R to get the Recovery Console and then I am asked to type a number that corresponds with which of a list of items I want to choose. The list is one items long and that item is C:\windows. When I chosse it then the line C:\windows comes up as if I am to type DOS commands in. I have no idea what it is for. I need help desperately please. What to do without reinstalling and losing my precious precious MP3 files andthe rest o' my life.
