Sorry wanabe1, still no response from victim.
Does this mean the "victim" hasn't posted back or the system didn't repond to the command?
Also have them try the procedure below...
...type sfc /scannow
(Note the space between sfc and /) and press "Enter". You will be asked for your installation cd, so have it handy. Wait for the scan to finish (this might take up to an hour). When it's finished, click Start
...type chkdsk /r /x
(Again...note the spaces) and reboot when prompted. This will run on boot-up so restart will take a while...be patient.
While I've got you here, would you mind taking a quick look at This Log
? I have since removed the Symantec apps, but would like to know if there is anything that might prevent me from finishing up the repair so I can hand her off to you folks. This was a dead machine when I started...Wunderbox
