My system won't allow these functions.

I'm afraid that if you haven't got the installation disc you can't do a recovery.

I was hoping that I could repair registry with others help.

I mean the partition to a recovery is still there, i just cant prompt it. Surely there's a way.

Can you boot into Safe Mode using the F8 key, then select "Last Known Good Configuration"

OR see here to start the System Restore Tool from the Command prompt in Safemode enter link description here

I can north, but files on my PC are corrupt. I can't open LNK files no matter if I'm in safe mode.

PS I can bring up Windows restore page, the restore page is blank. I also used to be able to press a F key on restart to do a system recovery...but not anymore.

I think I have a bad virus which stops any attempt to repair PC, Even at start buttun theirs no all programs or my Computer.

Sorry for bad english...i should have translated better.

%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe just brings up a blank system restore page.

To be able to do any kind of Repair/Restore you are going to need an XP Installation disc. If you don't have one then see if you can borrow one.

Even though on my D drive I have the XP installed? Doesn't make sense. Surely I can repair so I can press the f key and do a recovery.
