I got an Avira popup warning of malware. i said remove. Then I got windows xp recovery popup of critical hard drive issues. I said fix, it showed defraging. Then it said 5 critical errors could not be fixed. Advanced module needed purchase? The error is (installed IDE/SATA hard disks. restart system, which I did but am getting same windows xp recovery window. Also when i went to programs it said empty. Also keeps making that error sound

Your HDD is not failing your system is showing the classic signs of the XP Recovery Virus, Hopefully some one will be along to move your post to the relevent malware section.
