    What is empty loop?

    What is windows.exe?

    Do you mean winload.exe?

    Sorry not have explained clearly!!! Empty loop was the website that I got unlocked from. I meant unlocked which is the programme you suggested I downloaded, did and it seem to have wiped all my windows applications

    When I tried to reboot screen came up with (I thought) win.exe or something like that? Have just tried to boot again and this time nothing has come up (including no windows boot ups at all again) and no mention of windows.exe or win load.exe or whatever it said......

    Bottom line is I installed windows 8 and the only issue I had was the windows.old file. Tried to get rid of it with unlocked and that has wiped windows off my system! No desktop, access to programmes, desktop icons etc.

    If their is anything you can do to help I'd appreciate that

    Thanks

    Dave

    the programme you suggested I downloaded
    I am sure I didn't.

    I would guess you mean unlocker?

    Hard to tell what has happened from your description.

    Need to see what is still on the drive .
