No, I didn't search the files. I didn't have a chance. . .it makes sense that they were missing. . . now
my problem with installing SP2 came to a head two days ago. I was in contact with Dell Support. They said my Windows XP needed to be repaired and had me try to install a 'repair' to XP from my original disc. It was a complete disaster. When I would turn on my computer it would hang up and I couldn't even get on to Windows at all. The service tech thought my hard drive may have had a bad sector. I ended up doing a complete reformat (losing lots of stuff I was too lazy to have backed up!!) about 2 hours ago.
The good news is that my computer is functioning again.
The bad news is that all the neat stuff I had on my computer that I learned about on bleepingcomputer (like WinPatrol, PC-cillin, spy-bot, etc.) is all gone.
If I had Autoruns installed I'd run it and check those files. But I'd bet they're there now. I have a lot of work to do getting my SP2 downloaded and installed (hopefully).
