That worked! thanks so much for your help. Hope I haven't kept you up too late, sleep well.
yes I do have an auto leveling sensor.
1.1.8? I am using marlin 1.8.5 is this wrong? I downloaded the configure.h file separately from somewhere (this was now over a month ago and I do not remember where)
EDIT: read wrong 1.8.5 is version of the arduino IDE, Marlin says its 1.1.x
Well I have made some progress. Successfully got it to upload (not entirely sure how but it involved uploading the original "example - ArduinoISP" sketch onto the uno again) Have successfully uploaded the bootloader to the Anet board, tried to power it up but still appears bricked (2 rows of white boxes on the LCD) so tried uploading the marlin sketch again still no luck.
Then tried selecting the anet 1.0 (optiboot) board to see if that helped, uploaded the bootloader and no luck, reuploaded marlin, no luck. Can't seem to get rid of these white boxes.
I am powering the Anet board from the uno during upload, then disconnecting the uno and powering the Anet up from its own power between each upload to test.
Any idea what I am doing wrong at this point?
Sure did, is set on the only port available, which I tested as correct by noting that it disappears if I unplug the uno, and reappears when I plug the uno back in.

I had previously tried using the sketch that comes with the arduino IDE listed in examples to turn Uno into ISP. That resulted in the previously listed error message. I have double checked my wiring and tried again with the same error.
I have now tried again using the sketch that you provided and I get the following error message
avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 1 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x66avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 2 of 10: not in sync: resp=0xe0avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 3 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x66avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 4 of 10: not in sync: resp=0xe0avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 5 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x66avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 6 of 10: not in sync: resp=0xe0avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 7 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x66avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 8 of 10: not in sync: resp=0xe0avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 9 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x66avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 10 of 10: not in sync: resp=0xe0
avrdude done. Thank you.
An error occurred while uploading the sketch
I have tried 3 times with this sketch and get the same message each time.
I have checked that I have the right board and port selected and programmer is set as "Arduino as ISP"
Any further ideas?
Well my Uno has arrived and I have it set up as a programmer now. I have done some research and wired it up according to what I have found and attempted to upload a new bootloader to the Anet board. I'm not sure if I did something wrong but I am still receiving the following error:
avrdude: Device signature = 0xff7f00avrdude: Expected signature for ATmega1284P is 1E 97 05
So I am back to take you up on your offer of being able to walk me through this.
Thanks again for your time and patience

Well I'm not sure what happened to my last post but, I've done a little research and it looks like the only way to set up the Uno as an ISP is to have yet another board which I don't have. Am I mistaken here? Sorry I really don't understand the whole Arduino thing very well.
Ahh thanks, I'm based in New Zealand. If not a USBASP what would you suggest I look for? The last one I bought was marketed as an ISP Programmer and I'm afraid I don't really understand the difference. It was only after plugging it in and seeing that windows recognized it as USBASP that I knew that's what it was.
Unfortunately no I don't have any arduino boards around. This has been a number of firsts for me, first 3d printer, first time dealing with anything arduino. I'm sure there's a lot I don't understand yet but for me getting to learn new stuff is half the fun of it. ;)
I guess a glass bed and another USBASP is the way to go for now.
Thanks for the help.
