Long time no see techspot! Anyway I was running combofix ignored the you have norton running message because I never noticed norton on my pc or in the taskbar. ok'ed it away and it messed up my computer bad.Now i have this err1err 3 message. F11 recovery doesn't work I guess because my windows harddrive is destroyed? I read somewhere someone disconnected something in their computer reconnected the connectors and it worked fine again? I guess my only choices are to download a windows vista recovery disk? Is there any recovery disk in particular you can recommend?
