I have a pre which I can't get past the Palm profile set up because it no longer has a carrier. I deactivated it to activate another pre and when I sign into that palm account it prompt me to restart the old pre. I didn't realize it would leave the phone useless. I would like to use it as a PDA.

I found the MetaDoctor fourm but was unable to find help for an absolue noob. I think my problem is that I am not running in "Linux" I have no idea what it is or how to use it. I did open my cmd box and try step one but just got
'sudo' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
I am using windows vista.
Can anyone help me?

Will running meta doctor erase contacts and call log on pre?
