Hi there,

Please try the following:

Start > Run > copy and paste in:
sfc /scannow
Click 'OK'
You will need your XP/2000*Grinler disk. If you don't have it and instead only have a recovery CD, there is a work around. View the following link for a tutorial:

http://www.updatexp.com/scannow-sfc.html

sfc - system file checker, retrieves the correct version of the file from %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

If you want to see what was replaced, right click My Computer > manage, expand event viewer > system.


If that doesn't solve the issue, you may want to browse this page:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...5&Product=winxp

Let me know if that's of help :thumbsup:

Certainly worth treying also, I didn't want to give too many instructions in one go. The best way to do so:

Please download CCleaner from here:
http://www.ccleaner.com
Before first use, check under Cleaner Settings, Windows and ensure "Empty Recycle Bin", "Temporary Files", "Memory Dumps", "Old Prefetch Data", "Cookies" and "Temporary Internet Files", are checked. Please also go in under Options, Advanced and ensure the box next to "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older then 48 hours" is 'unchecked'.

Then open it and select any other items you wish to clean up. This will remove any malware hiding in your Temporary Folders as well as freeing up a large amount of disc space :thumbsup:
