windows.old Vista - Vista
Hey all to be as detailed as possible \/

Stupid me.. I was have a very hard time trying to find out why onw of my
much need programs wasn't working. After finding that it was because of a
codec (and not knowing how to identify which one) I decided to reformat my
Windwos Vista.

And not knowing how to didn't help, i did google it etc.

But so I entered the installation disc in and installed another Vista over
the top of my one. Thus having a 'windows.old' folder.

After searching I find that the old other cases similar to mine are people
who have installed vista over XP and want to switch back.

I however want to switch back to my old vista. the windows.old and current
windows are in the same partition for what its worth...


so do i delete that new windows file? how? is there a CMD process?

help would be absolutely aprechiated and loved

thanks, Ben
