Allright so i got spybot hijack this avg free and spybot snd ran all of them and nothing was found. 2 of my drives all said windows cant find rescyled boot.com
I have a partitioned c drive of like 2 gbs and i also couldnt access that. After tinkering around i got accesses to the partioned drive and the 500 gb drive but i still cant get access to my C drive that my OS runs off. Also at startup it gets stuck at the intel screen a lot and when it dosnt get stuck it goes very slowly and for a split second it says something on the black screen like invalid boot.ini but thats about all i can read. Is this something to do with the boot.com? Please my computer is like my life and it used to be nice and fast now its slow and very fustrating please please help me get it back to the way it is supposed to be working.
Let me know what i need to do and other infromation and stuff you need from me to help me and i will get back to you asap. Thank you!

Your Master Boot Record is corrupt. I'm moving you to the XP forum

Generally, a corrupt MBR may be fixed by running either/both the fixmbr command and/or the fixboot command from the Recovery Console of the XP install CD.

I would try the fixmbr command.
