I doing my regular maintenance stuff and went to pest patrol it showed several items, so i went and ran adaware se, then register mechanic. both found some items i then ran hijack this and it showed some items linked with the trial version of pest patrol that i had deleted and no longer have the program so i checked them and deleted them off.

I seen the automatic update icon clicked it updated my computer. i had to restart as always when it attempted to reboot it said NTLDR missing press any key to restart. but it continues to say this.

I can press either f-12 for boot menu or f2 i believe. other than that my computer is dead.

please help if you can.

i found that this was short for NT loader is a program loaded from the hard drive boot sector that displays the Windows NT start up menu and helps windows NT load.

there are about 9 causes from seriously corrupt sector/ master boot record to ,loose faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable or Misconfiguration problems.

Or as mine was......A FLOPPY DISK IN DRIVE A...... took it out works fine :thumbsup: :flowers:
