Question about Acer Computers & Internet
Your boot.ini file is deleted. You probably did this accidentally or you were hit by a virus that does this.
You can boot using any wndows xp cd and when prompted in the status bar at the bottom press the appropriate F key to enter a repair console. Once you see the command window, type HELP
You want to locate the command that is something like fixmbr or fixboot scroll down until you are at the end of the help commands display and then type that command. It will find your windows installation and ask you to confirm it. It will then write a new boot.ini file and you can then turn off the PC, eject the CD and boot normally. After this, run a full virus scan or go to kapersky.com and run their online scanner.
