Unable to access some programs

By agoldstein7 ·
Win ME screwed up. some programs can't be open because either the path is wrong or the file itself is screwed up. It all occured after I attempted to delete shortcuts. (A little knowledge is dangerous) Anyway, until I reformat the drive I can't evenplay yahoo spades online because a needed component isn't accesable, and wont download.

Unable to access some programs

I think WinME has a restore feature which may have created a restore point before the files were deleted or damaged. Can you provide a comment as to what specifically is the name of the component that isn't accessable and won't download and the names of some of the shortcuts you deleted. I doubt your problem/s is entirely related to deleting just a few shortcuts.

WIN ME system restore is ********. Of all the computer problems Ive had over the years, restore did not fix one.

Just a little advice, dont use ME, and deleting shortcuts dont affect applications(as long as you are positive they are shortcuts)

PS: ME restore points dont suck. ME sucks.
