What error were you getting when it wouldnt boot? Its pretty uncommon for a boot sector issue these days to wreak havoc. They were mostly caused by viruses that would replicate to the MBR. Even crap virus sw has gotten pretty good at blocking them. Also from recovery console, which is what sounds like you are using run chkdsk /R. That will fix errors on the disk. See this alot at work when we have a power surge. Pcs will reboot then blue screen with drive inaccessible errors.

I'm dealing with I don't know how many viruses and trojans on my daughter's LT. All the utilities are disabled in the registry including regedit. Only alternative now is to reinstall the op sys. I only have XP Pro and it's not supported anymore. Can't even get the SP's anymore.

I only have XP Pro and it's not supported anymore. Can't even get the SP's anymore....since when?... I have an office building full of XP workstations.

XP pro is still supported by MS, service pack 3 is latest pack, if your not getting to the MS windows update website then its probably down to a virus redirecting your DNS.
