I ran AVG and Spybot, on my wife's computer, before I went to work this morning.
AVG found nothing and Spybot found only tracking cookies.
I shut it down and went to work.
Tonight, it won't get past the splash screen.
I tried to get into the repair console and it freezes when it looks for an OS.
I tried to install another W2k on the partition and it freezes when it looks for an OS.
I set the HD to slave and used another HD for master, loaded W2k and I can access the slave drive. That would mean the HD is OK and it is a software problem?
I can transfer her files, email and etc. to the master HD, but I would love to know how to fix the problem so the original HD would boot.
