I put in a XP disk and tried to do a repair console and its asking for a password that I dont have and cant get. (PC is second hand)
So my "Q" is whats the best way to proceed?
All I can think of is to put its HDD in my PC and copy the keeper files to mine and wipe it out and start over.

Does anyone have any other ideas before I do that?
One other option is to use Windows PE or Ultimate Boot CD - Overview to replace the file with a good copy from another system. Both are free and will allow you to boot from CD or USB and read\write NTFS.

Failing that use it to reset the admin password ( BART-PE does anyway ).

Would copying the missing file from my pc work? I can put her hdd in mine and just copy from mine to hers if that will work.

Yes it would if that is the only file. Chances are it isn't but it is worth a try. When you have it in your system it is work doing a chkdsk

Hey DS I created an ISO image for you that you can use to boot your pc. I used ERD commander to create it. Just use Nero or whatever image burning software you have to create the bootable cd. Boot your pc with it, then you do a system restore, or use the cd to copy the files you need to it. You can even do a crash analysis. I will put the iso in the usual place for you. Hope it helps. If anyone else wants a copy of the iso, let me know, and I will post a link to it with a 24 hr TTL.

To late. I have already wiped it out.
Only to find out afterward that the copy of XP MCE stored on my hdd had a corrupt file and was no longer any good to burn to disk.

Now I'm on a mad hunt to get it back up.

I should knock the heezy out of you DS, lol. You know what I do for a living, you could have hit me up, and I would have helped you fix that with no problem. Any way, sorry you had to go thru that. Let me know if you need any more help. At least you can save the ISO for the in the future. You can use it to boot any system.

cant connect to Youtube from Everio Mediabrowser
I use Everio Mediabrowser to download my JVC videos. I can upload directly to You Tube on it but since I started using W7 (64 bit home) I get an error it cannot connect to Internet. It works fine on my other laptop that runs XP so I'm thinking it is a W7 issue not my software. I had this...
