because of these reason:
- you don't seem to have the right cd
- you would still need to gather the driver and install them too
- you would need to reinstall all you data(personal files, music, et)
- you would need to have the cds of the programs like word
so all in all if you get no joy with the link given do the reinstall but while there there is hope try the link

with a new install of windows there are NO malware ...just pristine copy of windows...= no need for malware forum

I would just give the HJT log to security and ask them if this is a hard or easy one, then choose the easier of the two options, and I am in agreement that the best thing would be to make a restore disk with a backup program, a lot depends on how many are not natrual xp drivers, how much data is to be backed up and does one have spare copies of programs to reinstall, eitherway not to have a backup is bad but to save/reformat/reinstall/load for each and every malware attack....

Simple tool for backup hardware drivers' files. DriverBackup! preserves drivers of your hardware peripherals from injury of time,saving important files into a specified directory.So you can use these files to reinstall your perip. without CDs or Floppys
