Oper System: Windows XP
Dell Inspiron E1705
topic should read "already READ XP fixes sticky" Mod Edit: Fixed ~ Hamluis.
Note: I have read the XP fixes sticky, not sure it applies to my situation.
I got a nasty virus/malware last night, finally get malwarebytes to run and let it run overnight. Come to my computer this morning and I have the "NTLDR not found, press any button to restart". I have read up on this issue (by using the windows recover from the installation cd) and am trying the "copy d:\i386ntldr c:\" however I get "the system cannot find the file specified" as a response. I feel like I am decently computer savvy, in that I can find my way around with good directions, but won't be able to do much as far as interpreting what I see is concerned. Here is my c:\windows map (which doesn't seem right to me, but I again, not the right guy to ask)
?FAT 16 39MB \Device\Harddisk0\Partition1
C:NTFS 89150MB \Device\Harddisk0\Partition2
E:FAT32 4754MB \Device\Harddisk0\Partition3
F: FAT16 8MB \Device\Harddisk0\Partition4
Also, I am not sure if this is pertinent or not, but I am not using the copy of windows XP that came with my computer. I am using a different one, but it is still windows xp (not pirated)
