View Full Version : XP: System & win.ini lost

20-05-2002, 04:08 PM
I got a virus which told me my system and win.ini's had been deleted. I checked, and sure enouff they were gone.

I rebooted and everything was fine except for a few glitches, like how I can't make a system restore point etc.

Is there:

1) a way to get MY system and win ini's back

2) a possibility that an XP USER could send me their ones, so I could try it and possibly reconfigure it.

Thanks a bunch in advance,

Hmm i would send you my ones but the wouldnt work. do a reformatt. you probably should, its good to wipe the drive clear every few years.

When was the last time you reformatted?
