I'd say you did more than create a partition. Can you choose which computer to boot up to?

You can't "accidentally" create a partition. There's software involved & numerous steps that have to be taken. Explain exactly what you were trying to do & how you went about doing it.

I downloaded fix- it utilities 9 and did a scan that was suppose to speed up your computer and deleted files that they said were safe to delete.But other programs needed parts of the files to run and now I have a whole bunch of missing items and files that wont open.went to safe mode and changed some things in set up and my computer wouldnt start.Used the fix-it utilities start up recovery disc and created a partition (which I did not know what it was and thats were I am now.

Sounds like you wiped out your OS when you created this "partition". You should only do things you clearly understand.

Doubt you made a backup so your only option would be to take it to a computer shop and see if they can restore it otherwise they will need to reload everything from scratch.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Yeah, sounds like it really made a mess of things. If you don't know how to wipe the hard drive & reload windows from scratch, take it to someone who does. If possible, copy out all your important photos, videos, word docs, etc before having it worked on. And in the future, don't fall for the snake oil claims of so-called "fix it" software. Had you googled up some reviews, you would have found how poorly rated that particular program is. Here's a few examples from Amazon:

"Stay away from it - it claims to "fix" things ... yet it does more damage than anything else!"

"I should have known better!!!! It ruined my computer and I will have to take it to be repaired."

"Fix-Utilities 9 should be retitled: "Screw your computer, Sucker!""

"PC Fix-it Utilities 9 Professional software is a DISASTER."

Beware of all magic computer cure-all programs on the internet (including registry cleaners). Always seek advice before being tempted because most do more damage than good.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
