|So here's an update, after failed to repair with the instalation disk, I found an instalation disk to a windows xp profesional that no one was using, so I loaded it, and I found that I had 250 GB of unpartioned space, so I partioned it and installed xp profesional. After instalation, I was able to access all the files from the other instalation. So first thing I did was get internet, install McAfee and run the Malicious Software Removal Tool (thanks johnw). then i did a search for services.exe and lsass.exe and I found that in addition to their normal location, there was a new folder on my old desktop called xxxxxx. Access was denied when I tried to follow the regular filepath to the desktop, but I could get to it by opening a folder from the desktop then going up one level. In this xxxxxx folder I found the following:|
addins, AppPatch, Config, Connection Wizard, Cursors, Debug, Driver Cache, Fonts, Help, ime, inf, java, Media, msagent, msapps, mui, repair, Resources, Security, system, system32, Temp, twain_32, web, WinSxS, a shortcut to MS-DOS program, clock.avi, explorer (an explorer command), explorer.exe, hh.exe, msdfmap.ini, regedit.exe, system.ini, twain.dll, twain_32.dll, twunk_16.exe, twunk_32.exe, vmmreg32.dll, win.ini, winhelp.exe, winhlp.exe.
Inside the system32 folder is all the same stuff thats in the correct system32 folder, but I can double check if it'll help identify the problem.
I'll respond again with the results from the 2 scans.
Also, all the stuff that used to be on the desktop isnt in the desktop folder anymore
