Been having some issues. At first I thought it was just my OE, but now it appears my OS/registry has some corrupted files. It takes forever to shutdown, and it automatically tries to run chkdsk upon boot (chkdks does identify some problems). Upon boot it tells me that both userenv.log and APSDaemon.log are corrupted and can't be opened. My Kaspersky is no longer updating either. All these problems occurred after I initally ran sfc/ scannow and clicked "cancel" when it asked for XP CD (because I didnt have CD).
Today I burned the XP SP3 ISO (obtained from MS website) onto a DVD and reran sfc/ scannow. I clicked OK when it asked me to insert the CD. Nope, it said wrong disk. At this point I dont know what disk it is looking for. My system is originally a SP2.
I'm hesitant to do a full install from the ISO because I don't know if it will accept my XP2 key. I don't even know if that would solve the problem should it accept the key.
