    Im not sure but u can try this... Put the windows disk in the drive then let the computer boot up.
    When the windows disk is in the drive i think its supposed 2 automatically check 4 errors and stuff and restore them.

    System restore doesnt restore files!

    Sorry if this doesnt work!

    pop in a windows disc, boot computer from CD rom (if its not letting you hop into your BIOS and change the boot sequence), and follow the onscreen prompts - you should have the option to repair an existing windows xp installation.

    sounds like you got hit by a nasty little virus.
