Thanks for that.
I haven't mucked around with SFC for a while as I cannot get it to recognise alternatives to the Windows disk, which I don't have as the OS is OEM preinstalled, and it doesn't want to know the recovery disks I burned off. They do work OK, but not from SFC.
I have the Recovery partition (D:) and a copy of (C:)Windows/i386 at (C:)i386 but must be missing one of the SourcePaths.
Actually, I tell a lie. I bought a copy of Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 which arrived yesterday so will now be OK in that regard. But it is just that I expect my machines to do what I tell them to, not what they think might be best for me. Infuriating, LOL.
