Greetings. Briefly... I made a photo CD for my sister who returned it and correctly stated there was no data on it. I had made other CDs, so I did a system restore to a date that I knew I had successfully made CDs. (On that date I had downloaded Earth Google). During the restore, the computer hung up and I rebooted. At completion, all I had was a blank desktop. My son has re-restored WinXp and every indication it that all is okay. We've done all that lay people could do (numerous times.) We booted in Safe Mode (all we get is "SAFE" in all four corners and "Microsoft (R) Windows XP (R) (Build 2600)" text on the top), "Last Known Good...", etc.- nothing worked. We've even boldly gone into "Del" - but nothing. Neither of us is computer savvy and don't pretend to be. I'm sending this message on a borrowed computor. Any ideas?
