You think? We will NOT help anyone we suspect of having obtained their software illegally.

Trouble is if you have installed SP1/SP2 since installing WindowsXP, SFC can fail becuase it can't find the needed files on the CD. There are workarounds, but sometimes a repair, followed by reinstalling the updates is easier. Either that or create a slipstream setup CD.

Another way that could be yours might be the second last to reinstall the whole OS .
The best way to protect one's registry / files / important drivers / database is to have a good backup before any upgrade......people must pay attention to this instead of coming after the problem is created......poat problem solution is difficult to find but the pre-problem soluntion is easy to implement .

(note the space between the c and the / )
sfc - system file checker, retrieves the correct version of the file from %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.
If you want to see what was replaced, right click My Computer > manage, expand event viewer > system.
System File Checker (sfc)
Scans and verifies the versions of all protected system files after you restart your computer.
You must be logged on as a member of the Administrators group to run sfc.
If sfc discovers that a protected file has been overwritten, it retrieves the correct version of the file from the %systemroot%\system32\dllcache folder, and then replaces the incorrect file.
