Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you need the XP CD.

Windows File Protection will show an on screen blue progress bar which will simply disappear when the scan is complete, reboot when it does

System File Checker gives an administrator the ability to scan all protected files to verify their versions. If System File Checker discovers that a protected file has been overwritten, it retrieves the correct version of the file from the cache folder %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

System File Checker also checks and repopulates the cache folder. You must be logged on as an administrator or as a member of the Administrators group to run System File Checker.

The System File Check is only concerned with replacing missing or corrupt system files, and does not affect installed software or data

Hey there rabbitslayer, welcome to Geeks To Go Forums

Could you please do a search on the following file: (taskmgr.exe)
>Start
>Search
>All File And Folder (Include system and hidden files)

When you have found it, could you please upload it to this site. (You are looking for the one in "C:\Windows\System32\taskmng.exe")

If you have any problems just let me know.

EDIT: SORRY, DO Keith's OPTION

It needs to be the same version as was originally installed, if you downloaded SP2 then you need an SP1 CD
