Hey guys/gals, here is my dilema. I got a virus/worm the other day. It removed my task bar and shifted some of my shortcuts. It also would not allow me to copy ANY files to a pen drive or external hard drive device sooooooo.....I began a Windows XP SP2 installation fix in hopes that it would temp fix it so I could pull my data off and do a clean format. The Install stops and hangs with approximately 39 minutes left until setup is complete. I have restarted my computer uncountable times and it still hangs at 39 minutes left. I do not see an option to quit the install. I tried removing the drive and putting it in an external enclosure to retrieve the data but when I try to access my folder it says that access is denied. This is obviously due to the fact that I had a User Account password. I can access the Guest Account and my Kids Account since there are no password on them, but not mine. I reinstalled the hard drive into the original computer and it still hangs at 39 minutes. Is there any way to quit the WinXP SP2 install fix so I can go back into my damaged user account and turn off my password so I can put the drive into an external enclosure and pull the data to my other computer? I would appreciate any help as I have digital photos a video files of the family that I can't replace!!!!! Please help!!!!!!
