Re: Re-installing windows xp pro RRS feed

  • Question


    I am stuck in about the same situation.  I have a fully custom built PC and just recently I got a virus or a hacker got into my system and now my computer has constant crashes and randomly reboots and powers on without warning.  I can not find the disc from when I purchased XP pro a few years ago.  All efforts to run system recoveries and start from boot disc have failed will I have to purchase a new XP pro disc?
