For some reason (I think it might be perhaps some "thorough" uninstalls I did, but am unsure), I'm having problems with certain functions in Windows.
For months, I've been getting error messages about various system files, but have been able to function okay anyway.
Although I have a valid installation of Windows XP Home, I have no disks, and therein lies the problem. I cannot reinstall Windows.
For the last 2 days, I am unable to see any text or graphics in my "System Restore" window, nor any side text or graphics in "Search" window. User Accounts window is also blank (window comes up but is blank.)
I'd like to, as a first step, since I can't reinstall XP, figure out if I can System Restore from somewhere else? Using Run? From DOS? I think this might help with some of the most recent problems.
In addition, since I do have a valid install (although no disks), is there anyway possible for me to repair/reinstall Windows XP SP2?
I would really appreciate any feedback/help on this. It's driving me nuts, and I think it's just a matter of time until I can't do anything...
Thank you kindly,
