A few weeks ago I had to completely wipe my hard drive clean, and do a reinstall of Windows XP from original XP CD. I also downloaded all of the updates to the software from the Microsoft Website. It seems that during the installation, something went wrong. Because about once a week, programs will just stop working. I lost Microsft Office and had to reinstall, then both my CD ROMs stopped working (twice), problems with my mouse being recognized, itunes suddently stopped working and can't reinstall. Everything is pointing me towards a Windows XP problem.
So in put my XP disk (WIndows XP Home Edition Version 2002) in to try and repair the installation, and it says that the version I have installed is a newer version, and it won't allow me to use the CD. ( I assume because I downloaded all of teh updates).
How can I go about repairing the XP installation in this case?
