      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

Problems using recovery disk

2 posts in this topic

I was trying to do a complete reinstall on a computer I have been working on.

As the disk was running, the power went out.

When I booted back up, I got an error message.

 

Windows/IFSHLP.SYS and Windows/System/VMM32.VXD files either missing or corrupted.

Type name of Windows loader C:

 

Well, I rebooted again thinking it was just a glitch and again I got this message.

I've tried to reboot using the recovery disk but everytime I get prompted to remove disk and turn computer off.

 

The computer is a Compaq running Win ME.

 

Should I try to download the files onto a floppy?

 

Some help please.

It looks as if the partial install is completely corrupted.

The easiest way to deal with this is to use a Win98 or WinME bootdisk. IF you do not have one, a copy can be downloaded from Bootdisk. The Win98SE is probably the best!

 

In the BIOS of the affected computer, change the boot order to floppy first, and boot.

At the prompt, type format c:

 

Ignore all the warnings about losing data, and click OK.

When done, it should be possible to reboot, with the restore CD, and complete the job.
