Hello. I have quite a serious problem on my old computer. It is old! Bought it in 1999 and its never had anything done to it other than an extra memory thingy added.
I'm okay using computers but not very techie minded.
Yesterday, I downloaded window washer to clean my computer. I know its okay as I use it on my works computer.
Its done too good a job and appears to have deleted all my windows files.
When starting it up this morning, it began booting up and then stopped just after it went to the windows screen. I then got this
"No drives found, aborting installation
The following file is missing or corrupted C:\WINDOWS\HIM.SYS
Bad command of file name
Cannot find WIN.COM Unable to continue loading windows
C:\" and it then has the C prompt
I can't really afford to get it fixed but I have three years worth of photos saved on that computer from when my daughter was first born up to present day. I just want to get my computer up and running so I can get those photos back. The computer can then be trashed as I've got my mum's old computer, luckily she's recently got a new one.
Any help at all would be really appreciated.
Sorry for the essay and thanks for your time.
