You will need to fix the master boot record with the Windows XP Recovery Console. To do this, you will need a Windows XP install CD.

Here are the steps to use the recovery console:

To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:

  1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

    Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
  2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
  4. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
  5. At the command prompt, type the appropriate commands to diagnose and repair your Windows XP installation.

In this instance, the correct commands are:

c:\fixmbr
c:\fixboot
The type exit after finishing then remove the Original OS CD.
The machine will reboot properly.

This will fix your boot sector

And All should be well

Lost NTFS partition on my WD1600BEVT, how do you restore so I can use again?


Depends on what you did to "lose" the partition-table.

Download the free 'PTEDIT.ZIP' file -- it is a "partition-table editor".
UNZIP it on a different computer, and extract the 'PTEDIT.EXE' program.
Run PTEDIT on your computer, and update the partition-table.

Doesn't show any files and folders when drive opened


Congrats, You got a nice virus. Its better you backup your drivers and data from ur root partition format it. reinstall your operating system and install avg 8.5 before browsing any of the other partition. I can surely tell u your task manager, registry editor or show hide folder won't be working. There is no permanent solution to this other than format. But beware don't browse other partition before installing avg 8.5. Your earlier installed antivir has given its way to virus its of no use. You won't be able to install antivirus or visit any malware removal virus site. welcome back.

How do i remove a virus from my computer?


You need to get a good anti virus program and install it on your computer.
it will scan initially, which will check the boot partition and main windows files.
then once the program is installed run a full scan on your computer.
I use Panda Anti Virus, http://www.pandasoftware.com

you can get a free version of AVG anti virus at the link below.

You will find if you think you have one virus, you may have a huge amount of spyware or virus in your computer. Don't wait, get a good antivirus now.

Reinstalling Problem


Once you disrupt the partition table by introducing a new linux partition the recovery program is unable to identify the recovery partition. The only success I have had is to boot from a program called partition table doctor and using it to rebuild the master boot record and partition table structure, you can download it here: partition table doctor

of course there is no guarantee it will cure your problem but it is a very powerful tool I have used with some success. Please rate my assistance as we depend on your rating to carry on giving FREE advice.
