Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Buy a new disk-drive (your current disk-drive probably is a few years old, and probably the warranty on the disk-drive has expired. So, it's good "preventative maintenance" to replace it before it "dies".)
Disconnect the old disk-drive.
Connect the new disk-drive.
Re-install anti-virus software (or pick a different one, since your current one "failed" to protect you).
Re-install programs (Microsoft Office, Adobe Reader, WinAmp).
Reconnect the old disk-drive as a "slave" drive.
Copy all your files from the "old" disk to the "new" disk.
Virus-scan the "old" disk.
Eventually, "wipe" the old disk, and then, once a week, copy all your files from the "new" disk to the "old" disk, to create a good "second" copy of all your files, to protect you, should your "new" disk-drive suddenly fail.
