servlet-examples / jsp-example.
Yesterday I tried to create new application inside Tomcat (trying to put the
directory structure - web.xml, also tried to put <Context...> inside
server.xml (later removed as seems not required)
Yesterday I also installed struts and ant. Created many test applications.
Many times i shut down the tomcat and restarted and every time it was ok,
many my test application ran properly too.
Today morning when i started  my computer everything seems to be stopped.
When I tried to start Tomcat server, it gave  lots of error msgs. At the end

tried http://localhost:8080/ i could not open.

any folder. 
When i tried to see Control Panel->System->Advance->Environment Variables I
am unable to edit PATH / CLASSPATH variables.

be working. I tried to delete old TomCat directory - but i am getting
following error 
Can not delete bootstrap.jar : Access is denied. The source file may be in

java files. Pls pls help me i am really stuck
