I have a Toshiba Satellite 2450-101 laptop with preinstalled Windows XP Home Edition OS.
Unfortunately, although it is a fast computer, I can only connect to internet by 56k dial-up connection because of the lack of telecom facilities locally.
Recently my computer was affected by a virus which deleted two system files ... (Bios?)Startup.exe and Command.com. I do not have a Windows XP Home Edition CD as the computer was supplied with a "recovery disk" only.
As a result, my computer now is very, very, slow with connectivity of only 37 kb/s.
My dial-up properties show that the packet scheduler is missing also, probably giving me slow connection speeds.
Can anyone advise me how to properly restore the missing files and put right these errors and omissions?
Thank you in advance.
