This should be at the top

[attachment=8338:attachment]

Though maybe it's not a feature until you have installed updates?

Can you go to microsoft.com to look for photo story 3 to see if it will download, it should install the genuine advantage validation tool

It's free but you need to have the genuine validation tool installed, when you go to download photo story 3, it will install that first, you don't need photo story, you need the validation tool

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 XP product key to complete this

If you have audio / video files which are subject to DRM you should check with the provider for known issues with performing an XP repair install


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
