Re: pc help needed

Ok heres what you can do since you have the disc,

Lets enter into the recovery console first before we try a repair of the system:

I see you have the xp disc, good. There is several options to do so bare with me.

1. Boot up to the desktop
2. go to
start
run
type
cmd
in command prompt
type chkdsk /r
error current harddrive is locked.
Run check disk on next reboot? type: Y (press enter)
go ahead and reboot pc now.

Is the system restore funcntional now?
Also this shouldnt erase any of your data, but to be safe you may backup data now before running this.

Note: sometimes using rootkit scanners can do more harm than good!...be extremely careful when using these programs, however I recommend you not using these rootkit scanners unless supervised or instructed by a pc tech.
