My computer contracted wmupdate virus the other day and wiped my computer. I system restored and had to run a couple disk checks and eventually managed to get the majority of my files back in order (albeit as hidden folders, which i manually changed back).
However, a few of my programs now won't run properly; for instance when i try to open Google Sketchup it loads but then immediately exits the program. Also, Photoshop throws up a runtime error:
An unexpected and unrecoverable problem has occurred. Photoshop will now exit.
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.
I have uninstalled both programs and reinstalled and the errors still occur.
I figure the best thing to do would be to backup my files and reinstall Windows. I dont have enough room on my external hard drive for a complete backup, so i have been trying to copy files from it onto another external hard drive, but when i try to move my files over the copy speed slows down to around 50kb/sec and seemingly freezes.
So i have a dilemma. I can't copy my files, so i can't backup my computer in order to wipe it in order to try and fix it.
Being an architect it just so happens that the two programs i predominantly use are the ones that get shafted! Any advice that could be given to solve my problem would be greatly greatly appreciated.
