This had started about 1 week ago.  I have used the AVG CD boot antivirus and it did find some viruses.  Both Fixboot and FIXMBR warned me about irregular info. 


I thought it might have been a boot sector virus and used the steps outlined in the original message to repair.  Chkdsk /r. FixBoot and FixMBR.


Still dead.  I have tried a repair install of Windows XP sp3 fro a Dell boot disk.  It completes but never boots.
