Hey everybody.....for one, first post!

I reinstalled WinXP home after getting an annoying virus/adware attack from one of my friends.

Now my Maxtor 200GB HDD isn't recognized in windows (It is in the Bios as your standard 137GB....)

Windows wants me to format it, but it has 120GB + of data on it that i feel like keeping

Installing all the windows updates now, and maxtors website is no help.....anyone?

Apply service pack 2 before doing anything else. You may also need to install drivers for your hard drive controller.
