I have been in the process of restoring my computer from a virus with the help of someone on malwareremoval.com. The person helping me sent me to the page on this site ( http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/43051/how-to-use-sfcexe-to-repair-system-files/ ) to recover my operating system files. I was going through the steps "to run SFC.EXE /SCANNOW without a Windows installation CD - only a restore CD from the manufacturer". I copied the directory "i386" from C:\WINDOWS\Driver Cache to C:\ and I redirected the regedit HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SetupSourcePath to C:\ so that it would read the i386 folder after rebooting. When I ran SFC.EXE /SCANNOW, I was getting the error message "please insert XP disk". Could the files in the i386 folder be incorrect or not up to date? What can I do to update my system files without an XP disk (only my system recovery disks)?
Thanks in advance,
