"Recovery" Module vanished - Win xp Pro Media Center Version (2005)

Switched on my bucket of bytes and lo and behold – NO recovery module.
Yes, we’ve tried everything except a few Hail Marys –

Any ideas (I tried that!) or workable suggestions.

More than likely you have been infected I would save and reformat.

Thanks Jethro. That is what we are suspecting. We have also inherited a
mystery dialer. I wish some of these idle idiots would get a job or girl
friend or both. Hi!

Say, you are not far from the house here. We are located in Dickinson, ND.

I do appreciate the help.
