    I recently installed a second hard drive in an old Dell desk 4400. The original HD was only 20G and with all updates etc. is filled so I found a couple WD 80G drives. One is an WD800EB other WD800BB. So I tried to re-install with my WinXP pro disc on them both hoping one would work and every time I get Runtime error R6003 integer divided by 0 R:\>. Like 20 times 10 each and same always. Looked on net and little help. Its not overheating nor does it have virus protected BIOS settings-that I`m aware of. So I gave up-LOL
    Then I thought maybe I could just clone the 20G HD onto one of the 80G HD`s. I found this utility on the net http://www.pcinspector.de/CloneMaxx/info.htm?language=1 But after reading a few instructions appearantly it works like a boot disc and is a DOS type deal, I`m hopeless in DOS.
    So my other question is is a cloning possible and would this utility work and has anybody ever tried or heard of it.
    Thank You.:confused:

    I hope your not using the Registry cleaner in PC Cleaner Pro :( Take a look at the following from one of our trusted Advisers/Tech's.

    Thanks for the heads up. I thought all the errors it found were redic since the install was relatively new, so I never agreed to it. Thanks again for the help.
