Help? Not really - you probably need to replace the hard drive.

Good Luck

It depends on the age of the computer and if you have a Windows CD that you can use to install the OS. Shouldn't cost over $100 for you to do it yourself. A new cheap computer will probably out perform a old expensive one and will have Windows 7.
