Can I re-install Windows XP Home on a corrupted computer without changing e-mail (OE) settings or ms office files? :thumbsup:

Did you try a repair install yet?

If you have the XP Disk, you can do a Repair Install. A repair install is nice because you don't lose your files or programs.

it appears that All Compaq provided me with is a "Quick Restore" disc which contain the XP files. Will it work the same as the XP disc alone?

BTW: Sorry for the multiple post on same subject earlier, the browser never gave conformation that I had posted, locked up and seemed like I had lost my connection. Bleep!

A Quick Restore will leave your settings and other programs intact but will require you to reapply all the Windows Updates released since the CD was made. See HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Performing a System Recovery in Microsoft Windows XP for more info.
