Ok I just talked to the Tech Admin... He said it is unlikely but here is something we can hopefully try.

[*]Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
Note:Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do so.
[*]When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
Note:If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
[*]When you are prompted to do so, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
[*]At the Recovery Console command prompt, type the following then press Enter:

chkdsk /r


[*]Allow this to run UNDISTURBED until completed (45 min or so)
[*]Report any errors
[/list]

Me too!

If we get you back up and running, we are NOT getting you McAfee!

I will give you some free AV choices that are very good and get the job done! :whistling:
