I think it was like 5-20 bucks. wasn't expensive at all since I already bought the right to the os.
right now I'm going through the task sheduler on another computer (vista ultimate) exporting the corrupted tasks to copy to mine. just frustrating because the other computer is very very slow. which is a hardware issue.
