  1. Ok this is my delima. I sent my computer in for repair, (LOL) the power supply went and it was under warranty. I get it back today, now none of my desktop icons are working. No matter what i click on it says the .exe file is missing.... So.. I un-install all the programs i'm having issues with. I go on the web and reinstall them.. Guess what? The now new icon's on my desktop still don't work and i can't find any of the files i just installed?? Am i missing something here?? PLEASE HELP! You have no idea how angry i am at the place that "fixed" my pc!!

    Do a repair reinstall immediately, to be sure that your hard drive is not damaged... Or a complete reinstall.

    already tried the restore option. Nothing there to restore to. I just don't get how installs disappear!

    Well, they don't disappear. Everything has got to be someplace... or the equipment is failing, or the software is failing.

    Tried to do a repair, it said can't read drive c? Then why is it in windows? LMAO! I did find that remote access was checked, and i believe it's no suposed to be. I unchecked it, and i'm trying that road.
