so i switched it back on everything was fine my desktop loaded then suddenly an unexpexted command prompt opened and it closed just as fast as it appeared so i couldnt see wat was writtin on it then after that closed another box opened inthe middle if the screen it had a timer which counts down from 60 secs and there was a message saying the c drive is infected by virus and needs to shut down

i couldnt do antthing because the exit button was grayed out so u just stood there watching pc shuting down

when i turnwd it back on everything was fine then i got a black screen with ntldr is missing press ctr+alt+del to restart itried this over a hundred times but no luck

Got a Floppy drive? and access to another machine using XP?

It takes just one floppy disc,

First format a Floppy disc

Run type
Format A: /u

Then open Notepad and copy and Paste this

[boot loader]
timeout=-1
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="First harddisk, first partition" /sos
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="First harddisk, second partition" /sos
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(3)\WINDOWS="First harddisk, third partition" /sos
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(4)\WINDOWS="First harddisk, fourth partition" /sos
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Second harddisk, first partition" /sos
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Second harddisk, second partition" /sos
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(3)\WINDOWS="Second harddisk, third partition" /sos
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(4)\WINDOWS="Second harddisk, fourth partition" /sos
C:\="Previous Operating System on C:\"

Save as

in Notepad as BOOT.INI

Then in search find

NTDETECT.COM
NTLDR

Add these to the floppy disc


you can now try starting your computer with the floppy disc
