    ok i'm freaking out here

    First I get the NTLDR is missing one most of my drives with 2 that say NTLDR is compressed and use boot disk
    Before I attempt to reinstall Windows XP Home SP2

    It gets to Windows prompt
    I type Exit
    It asks me about autochk.exe path
    So I tell it the path in system32
    It tells me it cannot find it but its there

    I try another drive
    I get Windows on
    After a few minutes whatever internet windows i have on closes down and erratic behavior goes on with XP menu opening and LOG OFF menu
    So I check task manager and I use like 3-4 different virus scanners and spyware scanners and nothing is found on any of them

    Ive used memory boosters and trying to check my ram and used chkdsk

    I have 5 drives I have NTLDR is missing with discs that are legal and mine

    Reinstalled Windows after partitioning and formatting them as well

    First of all I thought it was the windows updates or internet exploder updates
    So the second reinstall i didnt update
    The same thing happened

    What else could it be and how can i clear this up?

    Chkdsk thorough found some bad clusters on 2722 and fixed them
    But that didnt eliminate my issue

    This has never happened to me in the year and a half i had this thing until last week

    So I grab a 13gb drive from a different computer and wiped it clean and installed the OS
    I got same erratic behavior
    But this drive had a bootlegged XP that I didnt know until later
    Because when the pc was asking for updates she accidentally updated but didnt finish and shut off the machine before it could finish
    She got corrupted drive

    All my drives act the same way with erratic behavior with IE closing down, mouse moving on its own uncontrollably, start button pushed, and wants to log off but doesnt

    Has something happened to my hardware or motherboard from this issue to my drives ?
    I have 10 yrs of data I need

    I have Norton Systemworks and this drive has 2gb of free space
    The other drives have 30gb and 200gb
