If you go back to the system restore point you used, then click all the available ones between then and the most recent one, note down everything which was installed, uninstalled

When I go to System restore a new window opens and it's all white. I guess that function is somehow lost, same thing happens when I click on the system information. Search function is also lost...


Heres a screenie...

Have another go at copying the folder, if it still gives the same error, run the scan to see how often it asks for files from the CD, if it still a lot

You can use this guide to repair XP

Possibly, you will need to boot the PC and keep tapping the delete key until the PC enters set up. Change the boot order to CD ROM Drive then hard drive, press F10 then press enter, load the XP CD then type Y then press enter, as it reboots, look for press any key to load from CD, press enter

You will need the product key to complete this

XP Repair Install

Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system

After running XP Repair you will need to install all Windows Updates

Microsoft Update
