SINCE IT SEEMS THERE ARE NO VIRUSES, AND THE DRIVERS ARE IN PLACE AND RUNNING, I SUGGEST YOU USE THE XP DISK, OR IF NOT AVAILABLE, A WINN 2000 CD TO PERFORM ERROR RECOVERY, HOPFULLY, IT WILL DETECT ANY DAMAGED OR CORRUPTED FILES, AND RE-INSTATE THEM IF NOT, USE AN ERD TO BACK UP NEEDED FILES AND RE-INSTALL THE O/S
