Windows xp: Right so yesterday I resolved an issue with an autorun.inf virus. I managed to get rid of the virus, using malwarebytes. The virus converted all my file folders into shortcuts. To convert the shortcuts back into folders by using command prompt attrib -s -h -r /s /d d:\*.*. It appeared that the problem was resolved..... Now today I've turned the computer on and at first I received an error message before windows had loaded stating that ntdlr file is missing or corrupt. At which point I did a quick bit of research, put my windows xp disk into the drive, entered repair windows, placed in my administrator password, then input copy e:\i386\ntldr d:\ then copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com d:\. After this I removed the cd and restarted windows. Now I receive the error message system32\hal.dll is missing or corrupted.
Now holy smokes whats going on. Is this because I replaced the shortcuts back into folders yesterday and now they are in different locations or what? Do I bother to go through and fix the hal.dll error or once that is done is it just going to give me another thing it is missing........ Anybody got any ideas? Feeling somewhat in over my head now after 3 days of computer issues, a bit slow at the best of times!

Cheers for that Louis, tried for a while trying to sort out the hal.dll angle, couldn't get it to go anywhere, in the end it was suggest to have a go at replacing/repairing the boot.ini which did the trick. Thanks for your consideration, it's always nice to know there's guys out there willing to help!
