Hi All, I'm Stuck. My Advent 7201 with 120gb Hdd 2gb Ram and win 7 Ult, has told me I'm running low on space. i I ran "Disc Cleanup" and recovered some, (But not much) I saw a tab which said "use disc compression" to free up HDD So I press Compress files on drive "C" This did as stated and recovered even more space.... Great whilst the laptop was running. Unfortunately, after switching off my laptop, when I came to startup I now get the following message "BOOTMGR COMPRESSED, press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart your system. on doing so the system reboots TO THE SAME MESSAGE. It will not go past go. HOW can I get past this or DE-COMPRESS my files to get my laptop back. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Joe.
