You could have had as bad luck as I've had the past 2 days. 1) I'm not well at all .... got a flu type thing and I feel absolutely dreadful ! 2) My PC went completely potty ! XP Pro wouldn't shut down anymore (out of the blue) - was giving me exception errors. Used a few microsoft things - like rolling the PC back a few days to a known stable environment - didn't work ... used the Automated XP recovery thing ... killed my operating system completely.
Did an XP re-install on my smaller drive ... only to find that it would ONLY boot if I had the XP Pro cd in and the boot sequence had CD first. I did manage to backup must of my important stuff to a few DVD's while it was running like this.
SO, had to wipe the smaller drive a second time ... everything was working great - and now every now and then I get a blue screen on start-up ... more exceptions. I have absolutely NO idea what's causing these problems.
So, everything was fine until about 30 mins before midnight on the 31st Dec ... now, everythings gone a bit pete tong.
