    I have a hp pavillion a1130n with windows xp media center & windows service pack 3
    I was unistalling some software with the add/remove program a couple of days ago
    and then was unable to reboot so I selected F10 and did a system revovery of windows
    not a destructive install. Everything is working now but seems slower. I also have 2 HP
    Administrator folders. The orignal one and one that I created and named HP Administrator.xxx
    The oringinal HP Admistrator folder says it is empty when i hold the mouse over it. The other thing
    is that my free disk space went from 56% free to 36% free. I only have a 250 gb drive and would like
    to get back to 1 HP Admistrator folder and get my disk space back if possible without doing a destructive install and have to redownload a bzillion upates again along with all the software reloading.
    Any help would be appreciated.
