Question about IBM ThinkPad R31 2656 Notebook
The C drive is the hardware device where the Windows XP system (which is software) is installed. If you get the Windows XP startup shown on screen, and not only the initial splash screen and RAM and drives POST test, then the disk is still good, what is corrupted is the Windows XP system software.
In that case you need to reinstall Windows XP, using a recovery CD or a generic Windows install disk corresponding to the version on licence sticker at the base of the Thinkpad.
Let me know if you need further clarifications. Please do not Pass To Other Experts if there is no need to. That would be a waste of time for both of us.

Seems like you have been infected with a fun list of trojans and malware. I just fixed 3 machines last week. To access you drives, explore the recycle bin and then in the address bar type C:\ and hit enter, that will allow you to view your files. Search for SDFix using any of your favorite search engines. Exctract it to C:\SDFix. READ all the information and help files. Boot into SAFE MODE, if you can't you can run the SDfix from regular mode and I think it gives you the option to re-enable booting into SAFE MODE. Follow all directions, let it run, it may seem like it is frozen for a few minutes, but it is doing much stuff. After that is done, search for KillBox, Rogue Remover, SuperAntiSpyware FREE, run those and that should solve your problems... in any case, I would BACKUP ALL FILES that are IMPORTANT to you BEFORE attempting to fix this nasty mess you have. Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.
