    My internet explorer was not loading up although everything else on my computer was working properly. I downloaded explorer 7 using Mozilla. My c drive did not have enough space for explorer 7. As a result I restarted my computer, and windows explorer will not load up. I tried starting the system restore tool at a command prompt in windows XP but I do not have enough memory to run the system restore. It says I need 200 mb. and I cant clear away any space. Does anyone have nay suggestions? I have an external hardrive, but can't figure out a way to transfer from my c drive to the external harddrive.
    Thanks!

    For starters . . you can run the Clean up utility to free up some space . . to move files to the external drive . . right click on them and hold . . drag to the external drive and select move.

    To ru nthe cleanup utility . . Click on Start . . Programs . . Accessories . . System Tools . . Disc CLeanup

    If your drive C: does not have enough room to hold Internet Explorer and you are low on memory and disk space because of this then you have only one alternative is to purchase a larger hard drive and also a program like Acronis True Image. But there is one thing you have to do first is get some space on Drive C: open or free, I would suggest backing up all of the data files you can first to another media like CD-R's, DVD or thumb drives and then install Acronis and image the hard drive so you can restore it to the new drive.

    The easier way is to install the new hard drive as a primary master and the old C: Drive as the secondary drive and install Windows XP on the new drive and then install all of your programs and manually get all of the important data from the old Drive and then you can format it and use it as a storage drive.

    I have a large external drive ( 250 megs ) but I cannot get into Windows to do any of that, At this time, I can only start in safe mode and get to a command prompt. Can anything be done at the command prompt to delete files, move files, copy files, etc? Thanks.
