Ok, here is what happened.

I cleaned up my PC using McAfee power clean. I then defragmented the HDD and left the computer on while I went for a walk. When I came back, none of the programs would work. Then when I went to restart the PC and it trys to boot, but just keeps restarting. I can't acess desktop or anything to help. Sounds like maybe the HDD is corrupt. I have tried resetting the BIOS and trying another hard drive. MÃ¥ybe this is boot sector virus? Don't know. Maybe you people might.

The O/S is windows XP pro. It's a emachines. This isn't my PC, so I don't know to much about it.

Don't know if this will work on an emachines.
How to do a system repair.--Boot from the xp cd and go past the recovery console to the install menu. Select repair the existing installation. You won't lose any data except the xp updates. Unless you have a slipstream sp1 cd you will have to d/l sp1 and all subsequent updates. You MUST have at least SP1 installed and the updates for security reasons. Be sure the firewall and A/V is active before going online as you will be susceptible to sasser and msblaster. If you don't want SP2 go to autopatcher.com and d/l SP1 and subsequent updates.
