Well, there goes the neighborhood. My computer got the dreaded mup.sys boot hang about a week ago and I've been trying to fix it ever since. Got pretty close yesterday when I managed to finally start up in normal mode by copying a clean set of registry files, described by the procedure in this link. Then I realized that the registries that System Restore backed up were also infected with whatever got me in the first place, making me stuck with working but right-out-of-the-box registries. Figure I'd just completely reformat my hard drive now.
Anyway, my essential files were backed up on a second hard drive and I've already moved what I want to save off of this hard drive. The only things left are my emails (sent and received) that are stored on that computer. I can't find them and I've searched on this forum and google for an answer.
So, please, Tech Adepts of Relicnews, help me. I prostrate myself before your holy cogs and sacred lubricants as a man at the end of his rope. Kindly show me where I can retrieve my stored email.
(The email in question is through MSN Hotmail and my OS is Windows XP Pro)
