    After checkdsk:
    Volume created 08/5/11 9:19a

    The volume Serial umber is 940c-5cc5

    Chkdsk found and fixed one or more errors on the volume.

    78148160 kilobytes total disk space

    Diagnostic scan? Do you mean the testdisk command in xPud or some other diagnostic?

    If you meant, TestDisk....

    This is the log>>>>


    Wed Jan 2 15:28:30 2013
    Command line: TestDisk



    So, I think this means no errors.

    No not testdisk, this is another scan to look at the main system files and see if they are corrupt/patched or missing. The following are the ones i`d be looking at;

    Winlogon.exe
    volsnap.sys
    explorer.exe
    Userinit.exe

    It may actually be a lot easier to do a repair install. You have an XP system that will not boot, that could be for many reasons. You have an XP CD and a current licence. A repair/install rewrites the system over the top of the old one, all your own files, folders, videos, pictures etc are left untouched.
    What are your thoughts on that?

    Kevin,

    Great minds think alike. I have come to the same conclusion.

    I am currently downloading my data backup on to a new computer.

    I would like to keep this convesaton "open" until such time I have confirmed that I have all my data. It is highly unlikely I will not get my data but nevertheless as an abundance of caution.

    So, let's leave this at rest for a couple of days as my online backup service downloads.

    I hope that is good.

    Thank you very much for your expert work.

    Dan

    Kevin,

    Thanks so much for you help.

    I guess sometimes the bad guys win.

    anyway, I am up and running on the new computer. Sorry for the long delay in replying here.

    Anyway, much gratitude.
