ok need xp help again

ok few days ago my machine took a dump doto virus couldnt save anything. soo. we started from scratch and go to the windows update site and dled all the new stuff. well something had to be changed so i had to format it again cause i added a 250gig harddrive and partitioned it into two more drives. so the next time it takes a dump all of my stuff will still be on that drive. buuut. now windows will not let me use the automatic updates. and there is a ton that i need. it lets me install the new software for the use of the updates. but it doesnt search for them. pos im ready to blow this thing up.

What you might call solitude is something i look forward to.

do you have .....or have acess to a second hd ?
you can hook up the sendond as the master set yours as slave run it in msdos and get all your shit off it ....then f disk it

i would get a good copy of disk eraser to make sure nothing is left on it ...
it formats the drive three times with "0"
when windows formats it only copies over ...it dosent erase anything ...you need a hard copy disk program to do a proper f-disk

you will then be able to re-insatll xp..... 2000 whatever you like and re-load all yer stuff back on your origanal hd

good luck
