|i recently had a virus which corrupted my boot sector, and after a week of trying to repair i finally managed to get windows to load again.|
the problem im now having is that my acl list and tokens were also corrupted and replaced, i had to use a friends copy of his windows recovery disk as i cant find mine, and now it's saying i have a non genuine copy of windows.
i phoned microsoft but they said they need proof of purchase, which was well over 5 years ago, so needless to say i dont have that receipt!. i tried doing the windows loader activation, but that doesnt work either. so, what i did was install my friends copy of windows onto another disk, and it works fine...activated etc no problem.
does anyone know how i can get my original installation back to working properly, as i dont want to do a completely fresh install of all my installed programs, as again, i would probably run into problems with regards to licences etc that i have bought but dont have they keys
