:/

here I am, playing Fallout 3, killing some Enclave and Super Mutants, when all of a sudden, my computer crashes.
No big deal I figure, Fallout has been known to cause crash bugs.
So I restart. Odd thing number one, I get a blue screen as it's restarting, before it's shut down.
Anyway, it restarts, and I get an error screen reading
There was a problem starting C:\\*blahblah*\system32\*blahblah*\ayodoruvozerazur.dll

First of all, there is no dll by that name.
Second of all, I go to check out my system32, accidentally opening program files on the way. Nothing is there. not a single folder. Everything I've had is gone.
Third of all, I check system32. It's not there. In my "Windows" folder, where system32 should be, it isn't.
Fourth of all, and this one is weird, recently my computer crashed and continued to crash (again during Fallout 3, and I'm guessing there's some Trojan in my Fallout 3 files), so my dad and I decided to reinstall the Windows 7 OS. By doing that, it put everything from my old Windows 7 into a folder called windows.old. Everything in that folder is untouched, fine, just the way it's supposed to be. It's just my current OS's files that are gone.

So I'll just clean the inside of the computer, reinstall the OS again, and not reinstall Fallout.

Fortunately, we've got an online backup of everything before the crashes started, so I can get the stuff from that that I know is clean.

Basically, FML

Nothing, i just wanted to say it.
And for some odd reason, writing it out helped me actually figure out what was wrong.

YOU MENTIONED SYS32! IMA GET YOU BANNED! *rep... oh wait...

Aren't sys32 folders hidden by default? Got hidden folders on?
Bit of a long shot maybe. You're probably just f*cked

I've always been able to 'see' system32 though. It's never been hidden for me.


And I already beat New Vegas. And that game is far far worse on the computer in terms of crashes and stuff.

Usually you can't run windows if those files are missing.
The content of this signature is pretty much irrelevant
#9
sounds like a virus ****ed up your windows installation. Start safe mode and run a virus. If it doesn't work, try booting from windows disc and repair windows

You forgot to add the "has this happened to anybody else" at the end so that people don't "cool story bro" your thread.

Cool story bro.

Excuse me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't you not be able to use your computer at all (ie. make this thread) if system32 was deleted?

I expected this to be a moronic thread with TS complaining about how the site that cannot be named told him deleting system 32 will make his computer go faster and he tried it on his grandparent's computer and now he's in deep shit.

you need to be at least level 32 troll to go on the quest to give you the visor of the morrigan that lets you see the system32. try leveling up fighting barbarians or persuade a dark magician to give you a level boost by doing dark favours in his dark dark basement that carries the enchantment of never fading emotional and rectal scars

Actually, I like to avoid problems, which is why I chose Windows XP over Windows 7.

You're confusing 7 with Vista. Also, get off the "hate on new Windows products" bandwagon.

Windows 7 is over 9000 times better than XP. You're thinking of Vista.
