Yes scan/restore and scan and all the rest of the little things MS tells you. I have checked all that and used spare drive (back up I keep in drawer) to pull it up. thenScaned it for all virus, and malware it's clean. my BOIS does not recognize it as a 'valid system disk' so the first boot sector is messed up. But thanks for the reply
