The computer is fine, 900+mb of ram (newly installed), 80gb hard drive, running Windows XP Home, virtually free of viruses etc. I cant actually remember why it was restored or how, and I know that sounds a bit awkward. I think it was a restore to a previous date using avast on bootup, which found infected files and acted accordingly, but I dont know what it actually did. But what I am saying is, all programs re-installed successfully, bar VB6. What can anyone suggest?
