Most everybody has reinstalled Windows at some point or another. My problem is that I have software installed that I can't reinstall (VB 6 that I got from a friend, huge downloads that I deleted the installation file and can't redownload, etc.) When I reinstall windows with my lamo E-machines disk, it wipes out my intalled programs list. This is a big problem because some programs like VB 6 get mundo errors when they don't see themselves in the installed programs list. Any help or do I sound like a moron for not realizing something I should have?
