Hello, long story guys.
I had a virus which was hard to get rid and i think i managed it, then i tried to install a achitecture program but couldnt see activation screen so got told about these methods. Any way after do them i shut laptop down and restarted and can up with error couldnt start due to changes in hardware or softeware.
So i ran a recovery disc because vista was preinstalled. And now i get a black sceen with mouse pointer before windows logo. This happens in safe mode too.
But i have a lot of work that isnt backed up.
Can i reintall vista so it doesnt overwrite the old one and still have access to my files so i can back up.
