OK, I swear I didn't do anything to this computer except restart it. Upon restarting it, the computer gives me the following error message: Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: system32\drivers\ntfs.sys You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original setup cd-rom. Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair. OK, I don't get an R at the first screen. Infact, it attempts to load some files and then gives me the error message of : File setupdd.sys could not be loaded. The error code is 4. Setup cannot continue. *Editing in that I use WInXP Pro.* OK, my floppy drive isn't working properly, the light stays on continuously, so it has been unhooked (it was like this prior to any problems, and this is the first problem I have had with the computer except for the Wormblaster Virus). My neighbor coppied the ntfs.sys file to a CD, however, we cannot start the computer in safe mode with command prompt because it keeps giving us the same message about the ntfs.sys file and keeps rebooting. Husband is in the military and out to sea, would like to get this resolved prior to him coming home...could it be a virus, or what is going on here and most importantly HOW CAN I FIX IT??????? I mean I just don't know what to do...I think I have tried everything and all of the "fixes" that I have found online deal with either using a floppy (which I cannot), or copying using the command prompt, but I cannot even get that...never before have I wanted to see that c:\ in my life!!! HELP HELP HELP!!!!
