    My computer had been acting funky, so I installed Ad-
    Aware, to see if I could clear out the spyware. Well, it
    stalls after 44 pieces found. I tried to ignore that, and
    now my computer wont even load XP, I just get a blue
    error page, saying that if XP loads, fatal damage will
    occur, due to unmountable boot volume. I tried
    troubleshooting, but I can't get XP to load from disc (I
    even tried to load Win98 from floppy, and that didn't
    work either)Safe mode and Last good config don't work
    either...any ideas?!?!?

  2. Power off
    Desktop:...Open the case and reseat the hard drive IDE ribbon cable at
    both ends.
    Laptop:... simply remove and reinsert the hard drive.
    If that fails:

    Otherwise go to the website of the hard drive manufacturer and
    download their hard drive diagnostics.

    Do you have a hard drive overlay such as Max Blast?
    Windows XP sometimes has issues with overlay software.
    You may need to perform a Clean Installation without their overlay
    software which is not needed anyway.
