That link is bad.

Regardless...the best way to attempt to replace any missing or damaged system files...would be to do a repair install of XP.

The best way to replace and damaged/missing program files...would be to uninstall, then reinstall said program.

everytime i power on the machine it runs a chkdsk scan saying c may be unstable but once it stops the scan it leaves too fast for me to read what it found. how do i get it to stop running chkdsk everytime i power on?

The fact that chkdsk runs at boot...is indicative of the fact that either the chkdsk /r command needs to be run after the system boots into Windows (because the one running auotmatically isn't doing the job) OR the hard drive/file system may have problems that need address.

I suggest...go Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter. Type Y in response to onscreen query and hit Enter. Reboot the system. The chkdsk /r command will execute...and then boot into XP.

In the event that chkdsk /r cannot complete or flashes an error message and stops...please write it down and post same.

Let us know how it goes :thumbsup:.

Well...I've never seen a chkdsk /r just say that the volume is clean and not run...so I can't comment on that. On my systems/drives...apparently, there is always something that can be cleaned up.

The only time I see anything resembling that...is when I run chkdsk /r, it runs, reboots...and then a confirming message comes up before booting into XP and the system reboots into XP.

I've never found that looking at the results of a chkdsk /r...made any useful impression on my brain. I tend to rely on error messages and hard drive diagnostics if I want to assess the current state of my hard drives.
