most of the programs like ejay, magix and fruityloops have some guitar sounds, but they never sound like the real thing. i know garagebands a little better about it, but unfortunately that isnt available for the PC..
So does anyone know of any programs that exclusively make rock/metal loops?
Not heard of one yet, someone else might have though. Best thing is to network. In your case, find a good metal guitarist and ask them for some sound samples.
There's not really a way to reproduce metal with a sampler-type program and have it sound anything like metal and be good. A bunch of us were struggling with this in the tracking scene about six years ago and I wrote this big textfile on how to make decent guitar samples and how to progressively filter them as you play them higher in pitch to mimic guitar string harmonics and all that, but it's really not worth the trouble.
So yeah, the best advice, like other people have said, is to get a guitarist to play some loops for you. Some long loops.
I'm a guitarist and I might be able to help what kind of stuff are you looking for.
Yeah get a drum program (perhaps Fruityloops or sometin) and get powertab at this link - http://www.power-tab.net/downloads.php . then on the program export the guitar sounds (midi) to a midi file, then encode it to wav or mp3 and find a way to mix it with the drums. It doesn't make that good a sound but it sounds ok.

No, the best advice is for him to get off his fat lazy arse, and learn the guitar himself... (I'm just kiddin mate!)
I hate the sound of pre-made metal samples copied and pasted over and over to some shitty ready made drum beat. Nothing beats the real thing. In my opinion, if you use pre-made guitar riffs, then it isn't your song, unless you've told the guitarist which notes to play.

Same here, boy.
