I am using a compaq laptop, with multiple OS-- win xp pro and ubuntu.
My laptop has recently been sabotaged. And now when I boot it and choose win xp OS, this following error message come up:
"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-Rom. Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair."
When I reboot it with my xp boot CD, after loading the installation file, it does not go to the selection screen. Instead, an error message appears, saying the system shut to prevent further damage, and there might be a virus, and suggesting me to run chkdsk.....
And the system stop, I need to manually turn it off.
Since I cannot use boot disk to do any repair from windows, I get stuck here.
If I go to ubuntu (I have multiple OS), I can see the system file in c drive. But the c drive folder does not show on ubuntu desktop, I need to use 'System Monitor' to see them.
So i know my c drive is still there, but I can reach them and there is probably a virus.
Is there a way to clean the virus and fix it from the ubuntu?
Any advise will be appreciated.
