Duck and cover.
Your hard drive has issues.
Stop, take the drive out, take it to a repair shop (not geek squad or fire dog) and have them recover your data.
Or buy a hard drive enclosure that connects through USB, and hook it up to the laptop.

I purchased an external drive today, If I get a chance later tonight I will try and pull the data from the hard drive and put it to my lap top then re-load window xp? Are there any other tricks I can try once I have extracted the needed files and am still running the damaged drive in slave mode? or should I just wipe it aand re-load xp?
Any thoughts anyone?

OK I pulled all the important files off my infected drive using my new external drive today. I then ran Norton anti virus and it found the following in 7 registries.
W32.Randex.gen
Adaware.bde
Adaware.topsearch
trojan.Droppee
trojan.adclicker
downloader. trojan
it then proceeded to remove windows antivirus 2006 from the system...apparently it was a virus too.
Norton removed the low threats, but 2 were high, and Norton forwarned that they were installed in multiply registry files and that removing them "MAY" result in programs not executing.

I forgot about an older version of McIllin software on this computer(laptop) and it coffed out the following error regarding the infected drive.....

TROGAN GENERIC
E:/SSTEM VOLUME INFORMATION/_RESTORE{46DE8921-1D39-44D2-A9E9-64119261F211}/RP138/A0072139.EXE



Seeming as I had files backed up I ran Norton to try and fix the registry's damaged by the trojans. Successfully removed them.
Returned harddrive to desktop and Now I have nothing at boot up.
No F8
N0 F10 (to boot from disk)
just a black screen.
So Now I am wondering....... Can i put the damaged drive back into the external drive and re-load my windows xp set-up? Is there anything special needed to do this? Or can I delete the contents of the external drive then use install programs to load Windows XP back into the external drive OR
should I try and be adventerous and repair the specific files and registers mentioned above?

any thoughts anyone??
