This is a follow up to a recent post I put on the forum regarding Missing Files from DLL Cache. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/172408/missing-files-with-service-pack-3/
I recently performed a system File Checker using sfc/scannow. It came back with "files that are required to run properly must be copied to the DLL Cache". Insert your service pack 3 CD. I decided to uninstall SP3. I am under the impression from reading info on SP3 that it wasn't meant for PC's running XP Media Center Edition 2002. I wonder if installing that was what caused me to be missing files or corrupted some of my files. I performed the scan again after uninstalling SP3 and it asked me for XP Pro CD # 2 ( very strange considering I have XP MCE). I found a copy of XP Pro and put it in when it asked for it, however it said it was the wrong CD. I then decided to perform a system repair with the XP CD. This seemed to go through fine and do a repair install and keep intact my current programs, files etc.. I ran the SFC / Scannow again and it once again asked me for the XP Pro CD. I put the CD in and seemed to be using the CD to install missing files, until the end when it asked me for the CD again and when I clicked retry it said wrong CD. I think I am jinxed when it comes to successfully completing this system scan. Is it possible for a computer to run the system scan and not have to use their XP CD. My system has been fine with no adverse problems, maybe I shouldn't worry about this. It just frustrates me that I can't complete the SFC Scannow without problems. Hope this wasn't to confusing? Help would be appreciated.
