Another way to kill your computer

A bit of early Spring cleaning, turfing out junk files left on the computer by my old ntl service provider etc. A file called ntldr. Don't need that do we? Deleted! It's not hidden, no warning messages - must be ok.

Oh dear. Sound of breaking Windows. There goes the operating system again.

Attempts to recover the file (which is unique to my system and contains all the settings) fail.

Two weeks later I'm reinstalling printer drivers etc. to a new hard drive.

This is my roundabout way of apologizing for not adding much content to PennyMachnines.co.uk since Christmas. Things should pick up next month. Am I setting my hopes too high by longing for the day when computers become as trouble free as turn of the century slot machines?
