  1. Ok I have 2 questions !!
    1st : I am going to upgrade to a new motherboard with 1 GB of RAM DDR2 pc676 and a 512 MB PCI graphics card . The question is .. How smooth will be Windows Vista wen I install it ? knowing that I am a gamer and will play new games like MOH:Airborne and many other new games that needs a high end computer

    2nd : Someday I installed the Norton 360 on my windows XP ... It was slow and I knew it will be slow as my specs ryt now and crap !! so I uninstalled it .. after uninstallation it said needs to restart the computer .. wen it restarted the windows didnt start at all and said " NTDLR is Missing Press any key to continue " so I needed to re-install ALL WINDOWS ! :S plz guys tell me wat happened !!

    1 - get 2 Gb of the ram, do a dual boot Vista/XP settup, don't expect a LOT of new games for Vista (in my opinion)


    2 - whenever you Install a Norton product you must:

    -be offline

    - have nothing else running that isn't critical

    - have a clean comp, ie, all trash and temps clean and comp defragged

    - first, make sure you have downloaded the Norton removal Tool (lol)

    - ask yourself why you didn't use AVG antivirus and antispyware with AdAware and Spybot S&D (all free)

    You can Google for what NTLDR is.

    As to what happened - HEY! It's a computer.

    Explanation enough.

    Good thing is you are up and running again.

    NTLDR is necessary to find & load windows from your HD, that's why windows wasn't loading up.
