To start with i cannot give you my registration details as part of my problem (so SAS Service does that mean my ticket has not gone through to anyone) ? is all my icons have changed to the ones you need to run from a web site or a specific program so cannot open them.
The problem started when i tried to d/load a free cossacks game for my son, I found a site right clicked made a new folder and d/loaded the 3 parts into it game,crack,keygen, then right clicked the folder and checked it with SAS no problems found, when I then ran the 1st one my icons all changed as mentioned above, I instantly tried to do a system restore but all these icons were affected as well, managed to change my aol one so it would work but that changed all my other icons to aol ones. I have searched for a few things that might help but all these others after d/loading all experience the same problems as above and will not run. I found a program that let me try a system restore in dos which was start in safe mode and diagnostics
%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe ....this seemed to be working ok, it got me to the point where I could set the date pressed next and nothing happened.
Anything d/loaded or attempted install all have the icon problem......I need something to work in dos
I feel it would be good if it was possible to start SAS or anything else in dos clear out my problem and then start as normal then sys restore.
I do not have an XP disk to do an recovery command as a systems guy at work loaded it for me and he's on holiday for 2 weeks
