  1. Hello everyone,
    I apologized for being gone for so long, even forgot my password:eek: cause of being so busy workin' overtime,:haha:
    But anyways, to make it straight too the point, i needed help. I upgraded my vista home basic to premium and all my files ended up to a folder says windows.old. I dont know how to move everything back where it was like before, like for example those icons on my screen, like my webroot spysweeper. I needed help how to move all my program files back. When i click he start button, on all programs, all my folders or files arent there either.
    I would gladly appreciate your help on this matter.

    Thank you and God bless!
    Joy

    if you have a dual boot system you'll need to boot under the old vista to access those files.
