i had a friend bring over his PC after opening a attachment in a e-mail that installed something called antivir XP 2008 i thought it was just malware he got on his computer but when i went to go wipe his harddrive it will show "loading windows configuration" the black screen before the blue when installing windows again and then the thing reboots itself, i was thinking maybe it was a boot sector virus but im not sure. Could it just be time for him to get a new hard drive and that would fix it or is there another way? (on a side note i did find a way online to manually remove the program but that still didnt really fix the damage it already did to his machine)
EDIT- correction i just tried a fresh hard drive and it still wont load up a windows XP disc that i know 100% is a good disc it will still just get to the inspecting configurations part and reboot with error "NTDETECT failed"
