The easiest thing to do would be to do a repair install of windows xp if you believe you've deleted something in the registry. here is a link to a walk throughCLICK HERE. This should repair the problem
hope this helps :tazz:

If you click start then run then type sfc /scannow then press enter, it will check and replace system files, you need the XP CD
