In worst case scenario do a reinstall NOT FORMATTING THE HD, which createsa a Windows.old folder which includes your user folders and data.
Well this looks like the only option at this point, but what I am facing now is the inability to get all the email messages, accounts, etc, how in the heck do you do that? I already tried and one account was put in the storage folders instead of the regular inbox.

regarding my issue? or something you're trying. supposedly it should work but sometimes it doesnt, and in my case it didnt. I have custom built PCs.
I think maybe the method two and three should be reversed, being that its third party software. I mean if I woulda used option three, its a windows thing and probably easier to get repaired than third party apps. but what do I know.
ok regarding the custom install, it states that all of the previous files will be put in a folder called windows.old and can be accessible, so my whole intention was to move windows from one PC to the Other, cant I just do the same without having to re-install and use the hard drive as an "external?" or ?
ok going to do the following to get my PC back in working condition, see what happens:
1st: Custom Install Windows 7
2nd: Windows.old folder - Restore into a new installation
