    HI Everyone,

    I have a:
    -Pentium III
    -667 MHz CPU
    -512 MB of ram
    -Windows XP
    -ATI Radion 7000 Video card
    -Linksys Ethernet card

    After some XP woes, I decided to re-install windows. Well, here is the report:

    Its like I have a whole new system. The only problem: I cant access/use any of the games/programs on my pc. I can see them on my c drive, but when I click on the icon, nothing happens. Is there a way to fix this problem?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Hi, Sounds like you did a clean install and you will have to reinstall all your programs. You can install them to the same directories but unless you do your registry will not be rebuilt.

    I found that some small card games worked but otherwise I reinstalled everything. Peace Mal
