Looks like a system repair might work.But if a virus not sure if you would reinstall it or not.

thanks buteman,

Tried a system repair,the same text appears after the OS files have been copied.
Tried using Barts PE to scan for a virus,didn't work.Used my boot disk,couldn't even run chkdsk.

Only option I have left is to remove the HDD,back up the files and reinstall the OS.Any thoughts before I action the install??

Cheers
