By the way, I just wanted to let you know I'm going to have to do the repair later, sometime tonight, then I'll get back to you and let you know how it goes. Thanks.

I didn't get to do the repair until today but, the setup says it has 39 minutes to go. Question, do I have to reinstall SP2 again if I used a cd to install it initially? I know you have to reinstall updates so does that count as an update?

*Now I get this window saying "The file igfxcpl.cpl or Intel [R] Graphics Technology Driver is needed. Type the path where the file is located and then click ok."
Then there is a box that says Copy files from: c:\windows\drivers\intel\graphics. Do I just click ok?

Yes, though if you have a fast connection, use Microsoft Update from the link in post 6

Ok, the box went off now. Still says it has 34 minutes to go. About enabling windows firewall, do I do that even if I have another firewall installed or do I just enable the one I have installed? I know you're not suppose to have 2 firewalls on at once.
