I had to re-install windows home edition xp because of some troubles. It works fine, but now all of my applications dont' work. Adobe suite, etc say registration, serial information, etc is missing. Is there a way I can fix this without having to ire-install 30 or 40 applications.

thanks

I don't know exactly what options you picked during the reinstall but it could be that you have to move the apps from one directory to another or point the shortcut to the old directory.

Open the C: drive and go to documents and settings. You should see the names of all the users. Go to the application data folder of each user until you find the apps or wherever they might be. Then move them to the user directory of the current install.
