Thanks for your help. I appreciate it! I downloaded the Kaspersky
Rescue disc but again, it won't let me open it. When I try to run it, a window tries to open for a fraction of a second. It blinks open and closes.
I can't even open the Gateway Recovery Management to start the disc restore process. When I click it nothing happens. When I left click it and hit "open" nothing happens. When I hit "open as administrator", I get a pop up that says "Windows cannot access. Check the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there might be a problem with your network".
When I hit the "Diagnose" button I get another pop up saying: "An error occurred while troubleshopoting. I hit the details button and it says error code:0x800070005. Source: Engine. Context:Restricted.
I can't even commit computer hari kari...how screwed am I?
