I have this problem: after an infection, AVG has put some system files in quarantine and my PC won't boot anymore (safe mode don’t work either). I’ve tried a restoration via the consol and that has not worked. I’ve also tried to fix it with the reparation option via my Windows XP Pro (FR) but the only option offered to me is not reparation (fix) but reinstallation. I don’t want to reinstall all my applications on my SATA2 hard drive if there is another option.
So, I’ve put an old IDE hard drive on my PC and installed Win XP Pro (FR) on it and made a back up of my important files of my old C: (the one that crash, SATA2).
My question is: Can I copy the system files of my IDE on the SATA2 in hope of fixing the system files. If yes, what are the files that I must copy and how do I do all this. Also, I see a repair folder on my SATA2, can I also use the files in this folder for something ?
Sorry if an answer already exist, I'v tried to search the site but probably that the word I usr are not good enough.
