    You are missing files and the installation must have failed.

    I agree with Mike and would ad that if your going to reformat/reinstall you should actually wipe your hard drive over night before doing so. Reformating/reinstalling will not actually clear the disk of all that was on it before so you can save yourself from many headaches if you wipe the drive first. I use WipeDrive from White Canyon. You just set it and forget it. ;)

    I think the OP has gone. His post is 2 weeks old.
