Ok so I just finally got my computer to boot into windows after several days of it being completely screwed up. I think what i did was use a windows XP cd to repair it... even though my version of windows is xp pro, i dont know really how it worked but it got me into windows. But now I have no taskbar at the bottom and no start menu The windows button or ctrl-escape does not bring up a start menu either. And also I cant get it to recognize my ethernet cable, or create any internet connections. The only way I can navigate without my start menu is thorugh a windows explorer icon on my desktop annd thats about it. And I dont have my windows xp pro cd with me, just my roommates windows xp cd. So any ideas or \help would be appreciated, thanks.
