In the case of a bad virus/trojan infection, the only 'sure' way of sanitizing the machine is to format the disk, reset the Master Boot Record, then re-install the OS... In the case where the Boot files have been corrupted, and a XP repair (accessed by booting off the XP installion CD, then looking for the 'repair/recover' option) doesn't work, again a format and re-install is the only solution...
