Sorry have been busy elsewhere. Just got round to trying what you said but failed at the first hurdle! Run could not find sfc/scannow neither could Search!
BTW I do have original XPHome disc and have downloaded SP2 previously but don't have an SP1 XP CD
I have only recently reinstalled XP and am a bit reluctant to do it(or what seems a similar operation XPrepair that you mention as an alternative) again as I had horrendous virus/trojan/spyware problems after doing it ( only solved by lengthy work by Crusty Old Bloke on Geeks to Go)

Just been through the sfc,with original cd in drive, no messages from it about changes made. Have checked wordsearch prog. same error message unfortunately. Does that mean I have to do XP Repair? Is it likely to be risky when I go to do the updates? And will it mean reinstalling SP1 (CD)and SP2(online-don't have cd)?

Have a go with this first
Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then also from system tools, run disc defragmenter
Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, (all files will highlight), right click any file, click delete, confirm then reboot.
Download, install and run Tune Up 2006 Trial
Run Tune Up disc clean up
Run Tune Up registry clean up
Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, the screen will lose colour during the process which can take a few minutes and then needs a reboot
Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors
These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor
