I was having problems with goofy stuff. I ran Dr. Spybot and it showed I had 3 dangerous issues, which it recommended I delete. I deleted those 3 red bugs. I restarted my computer, but now it says that a windows component is missing and I can use the reinstall disc and press R, in an effort to repair. I've done this about 100 times. It won't read the original disc. I'm simply stuck, and cannot get into windows. Does anyone have any suggestions? Currently using daughter's laptop while she's home for the holiday and starting to sink into a very deep depression!
