I've had that happen to me before... You need to reinstall it. If your computer came with the software bundle then CD's should have been provided along with the windows CD and all that crap.

Maybe you can get a "backup copy" somewhere.

Haha, great to hear that, if you didnt buy the computer too long ago maybe you can go and ask for the CD.

All those retail store are always screwing people.

most of those preloaded pcs dont... they come with a modified windows installation that is usually tied to that pc only and is designed to install windows with all the crap they put on it at the factory... emachines does it... dell does it... etc
