If you have an XP install disc (not a recovery disc) you can try this: Navigate to \Windows\inf\. Right-click on the file sr.inf and select Install. Have the XP disc loaded in the optical drive.

You might try clikcking Start & RUN & type in sfc /scannow & click OK.
There is a space between the c & the /.

You may need your XP or recovery CD.
At some point it may ask you to insert one.
Or not,if you have a recovery partition.

Google sfc /scannow if you are unfamiliar with it.

Learn to take screenshots & add them to your posts. :thumbup2:


Learn to use Google Search.  :busy:

Make full system images to restore to if your computer goes bonkers.
