Hi, It is possible that your anti-virus quarantined suspected files but are required for booting up Windows. You can try: 1. Booting in Safe Mode to check things out; 2. Boot in last known good configuration; 3. Re-install Windows using the "repair" option. Experience has taught me that the safest was re-partitioning, re-formatting and do a complete fresh/clean/new install of the OS. Good luck and kind regards.

My hard disk does not opens except c-drive.if press right click on the disk and click on explore it opens.even i have on hidden option.i have windos xp os.

You have to back up your data, then run chkdsk and scandisk and then format the drive. By the end of this process, you will be able to open it as usual. Finally, make sure that your antivirus is up to date and scan your whole system for anti virus. If this process persists, back up all the system data and format the whole machine.

I have used norton ghost to do just what you're wanting to do.
1)run ghost on a desktop pc,hook your 60gb hd to your pc as a "slave"(using adapter).
2)"clone",or"create image"of the hd to a folder (on desktop)
3)swap hd's(on desktop)
4)format new(250gb)drive as "ntfs"
5)open ghost,and do a "restore"-of the saved image folder-TO new hd,re-install new 250gig in laptop.
///YOURE done!!!
-now you will have a back-up(old hd,AND image file folder.
