    Just when i formatted my PC to get ready to set up my PC, it died :thumbd: :'(

    I'll be off for like a week more until i can get another desktop to plug my HDD and recover my files before hard formatting it >_<

    For some reason the booting file got corrupt and i can't even boot from my Windows Copy, i tried like a hundred time and can't.
    Anyone got some tips?

    What i plan to do is just plug it in one of my friends computers, try to save some files and then hard format it.

    All tips and recommendations are welcome.

    Yeah if you can't get into recovery console, your kinda outa luck. Best bet is to get everything off the drive and format and reallocate everything. Probably the easiest too. I was messing around trying to a GRUB off my dual boot and it was easier to reformat.

    I added a 2 YEAR, 2PC VIPRE Antivirus Premium license this afternoon
    (after a 17-day test drive)
    and received a free 1 YEAR license to TuneUp Utilities 2011.
    I also entered Microsoft in the coupon code and got a 20% discount.
    I read about that discount somewhere in Wilders, for Symantec, I believe.
    Wonder how many vendors honor that?
    GFI does, I can tell you that. :)

      • Hitman Pro 3.5.8.119:

    • Keriver 1-Click Restore Proalready covers all types of problems. The only danger is if you give physical problem in HD, but everything will be saved in external HD (Thanks to Norton 360).

    • Definitely my best security configuration, does not weigh anything in my system, is fast and strong, if the Hitman Pro detects something just restore the snapshot (With Keriver 1-Click Restore Pro) and poof, everything new again.
