Specs: Windows XP pro SP3

well ive been trying to fix a virus infested laptop for the past few days. its been a loooong proccess with only a slight improvemet. for starters since the infected files were deleted the laptop can no longer download anything always saying some temp folder is corrupt. all he has is a copy of his windows as an image on a flash drive that ive tried to run on his computer 1000 different ways from opening it directly from the desktop to making it a bootable flash drive. ive tried scannow which scans then does nothing and checkdisk wich says it cant check his C drive because its in RAW formate. everything works fine aside from the fact his temp folder is corrupt and its slow now. im trying to figure out away to get the missing files that were deleted back or atleast be able to reinstall his windows with either a flash or a external HDD. can.

can anyone suggest anything i havent thought of?? thanks for any sugestions, sorry for the long story.

see if you can locate an XP Pro install disc from a friend or neighbor and try a repair install:
That may replace all the missing OS files
