With such a generalized damage, no one in the virtual world might be able to assist you. Why ? Because it?s almost impossible. I can show you long threads where only let?s say Help and Support was damaged and after tens of fixes attempts it was recoverd at 95 % (but not 100%).

Instead of clean installation of windows XP you can use the in-place Repair. How ? It depends if you have windows XP CD. From your description, you probable use a brand name PC, so ask them about windows XP CDs and how to do a repair with their supplied CDs.


Good Luck,
