I'm using the Free Avira, but when it bring up the remove, repair, ignore screen it says unable to fix, but you can download a rootkit program from our site. I downloaded it, but it doesn't work. I've even formatted the whole F drive and it's still screwing up.

"...I've even formatted the whole F drive..."

... if you do the below you'll loose any relevant boot record info esp if you have other drive(s) options to boot to:

... you could unhook the other drives(?)

... I'd be inclined to boot off the xp cd to repair (r) console then @ command prompt (type)

FDISK /MBR [press enter]

... also try this if you still have problems:

I tried this earlier in the week and when I went to R it took me to the system recovery screen. I didn't get a DOS like screen.

Okay now I'm going to see if I can get that screen to come up, but how would I direct it to check my second hard drive which is Drive F instead of Drive C which is the one that's working correctly?

It's a totally different hard drive. Also C is my main one, so would the system disk still work without my main hard drive being in?

Awesome! It worked. I had to make my secondary drive my main drive and when I went into my recovery CD it knew what to do. It replaced files that were removed by virus, etc.
