after a long .net session i shut down as usual only to discover that my hard drive was full of 'virtual' software holes. Key system files were gone or seriously compromised, I could no longer access my CDROM - rw and it took a good few hours to get myself into the DOS prompt where I promptly dumped all of the software programs that I could - the last one being Windows ME - access denied.I switched off and then back on again only to told that VMM32.vxd was nowhere to be found, after the message the computer reverted to the C:\> prompt though I still cant get access to my files. I now have no access to my system even at dos level and I desperately want to scrub my hard drive and get my cdrom back - I am past the point of caring about the files I have created (15 months worth)
can anyone help?
