I'm one of those people you probably hate because I use computers A LOT, but I really don't understand all that much about computers( don't be too mad because I will be taking some classes soon).
In this past August, my vista windows stop letting me update, and before I knew it I couldn't use restore point. I looked into the problem and noticed that the following file things in services were not working: Software licensing, volume shadow copy, and Remote Procedure call locator. I was told that re-installing my OS was the only solution. The thing is that I'm not sure if I have all the right cds to do this. The only cds I could find were sceptre (monitor drive), my vista Reinstallation dvd, and my graphic card cd. If I got this right, then I'm missing my sound card cd and a cd for my hardware on my motherboard? Heck, I might even need something else that I'm totally clueless about.
The short version is...... I think it's most likely that I will mess up and go from having a computer that is working fairly well to having a computer that won't even boot up.
What would you suggest I do? Should I just make sure I got norton working and play safe with websites and downloads, and ignore the fact I can't update my windows (I mainly will be just using calc programs, a mmo, and tvblinkxx.com).
