I am using Windows XP with SP2 and all the latest updates from Microsoft. Everything worked fine until about a week ago when my machine started to slow and use high CPU usage even though Task manager slowed the idle process at over 95%.

I have scanned for viruses, found and removed TR/DLdr.Agent.bdr.39

I am now left with 2 issues, which hopefully someone can assist me with thanks in advance.

1. My List of Add Remove Programs are showing up blank. Can anyone provide some guidance on how to recover the list?

2. I have a 250GB drive (used for additional storage only) that is now showing as 137GB. Attempts to access files on the drive end-up hanging the machine (support for Big Drives is enabled). Any ideas on how to recover without losing the data on the drive?

Have you tried booting in safe mode to gain access to the drive and the Add/Remove Programs?

How To Boot In Safe Mode


Yes - I have tried to access in Safe Mode and still nothing appears in the Add Remove Program list
While in Safe mode I was able to detect and remove the virus from my C Drive (System drive).

All attempts to access my data drive (250GB) hangs the computer.

try to do a repair with sfc/scannow and have your XP pro disc ready since it will need to copy those files from the disc. Here is an excellent tutorial on that subject.
