    loads of problems with my xp x64 install

    ok so today i was trying to get a game installed so that i could try and extract the textures from it, well i dont know what happend but for some reason my theme changed to the windows classic theme and when i restarted to try and fix it, it would start to load windows and then as soon as its about to start (at the part with the blue loading bar)

    it restarts and it just kept doing that til i was able to choose last known good configuration and it booted, however i did not have a task bar, i cant copy and paste or cut and paste and i can not drag and drop files

    both of which are bad since i went out and bought a copy of vista 64 and wanna backup my files but i cant, i also do not have internet on windows and i cant create a connection, so i dont know whats going on, but if any of you have any ideas please let me know, im trying to fix this before i go to work tonight, so i await your answers and thanks for reading

    I didn't quite understand what you were asking or I would have suggested a linux cd to retrieve the data. I thought you were looking for someone to fix your problem not work around it

    XP64 has very little support as it was never a main stream for people that play games. Youll just have to go back to 32Bit XP, or jump on to Vista.

    i already went to 64bit vista but i also never had any problems with any programs on xp x64, just xwing alliance which is a 16bit installer and doesnt work under 64bit os
