Do you have a windows XP CD ?.

thanks for the quick replies.

No she doesnt have the disc, She bought the pc off ebay about 2 years ago and it didnt come with them

You really need the CD to do a repair or reinstall, anyone who knows what they are doing would be able to save her documents before doing a clean install, Do you know anyone local who repairs PCs ?.Shouldnt really charge you much more than £30 or so,

You could always use Bart's PE disk downloaded from the net and use that to fix...I find that a complete scandisk usually repairs that error but I could be wrong lol
