I am having an Acer Travelmate 2310 with WIN XP Professional Version installed and running smoothly for years. Suddenly a couple of days back it got a virus attack and I scanned it with an antivirus program and was successful in removing the viruses . But in the process I believe the OS has suffered some corruption and now no more operates properly. . After booting, it shows "could not load or run "C\WINDOWS\svchost.exe ' specified in registry" Every time I try to repair the OS using the original OS boot CD it never starts the WIN XP installation file . But the CD is fine as the other potions of the CD like troubleshooting guide etc are read properly. It has problems only with .exe files (set up files). I tried even using a USB drive with the above OS copied into it with the same result. Kindly request those having some experience in solving these types of problems to help me mitigate the same. Thanks in advance.
