I've been clearing out my parents computer of all the clutter that accumulates and uninstalling all the software they never use, using Revo Uninstaller.
After clearing all the clutter I saw 'PCHealth' and without thinking uninstalled that. What was really annoying was as soon as Revo started removing it I realised but it was too late. You see, guilty confession here - I've gone to remove this before but did an internet search, realised what it was and left it alone. HOWEVER I'd forgotten this!
I feel so bloody stupid!
I really need it back as it actually does a lot i.e. Help & Support, msconfig etc - as you no doubt know. I found this forum doing an internet search and finding jim10011's post that was resolved and closed yesterday. I can't seem to be able to solve the problem though...
I've copied the PCHealth folder from a working PC, renamed the defunct PCHealth folder within Safe Mode and replaced with the copied working PCHealth folder.
Desperate attempt to make it work, but it doesn't.
Obviously I can't use System Restore so thats out.
I've tried running sfc /scannow. It doesn't prompt for the XP cd. The dialog box comes up, the progress bar goes across, takes about 30 mins and then disappears.
I know the computer is clean - the biggest danger to my computers is clearly me!!!
Many thanks in advance for any help received,
EDIT: I saw the following on Ur I.T. Mate Group
Q. I accidentally deleted the PCHEALTH index.dat file, what do I do?
A. The facility that this file provides, can be restored by going to Start > Run, and entering the following - then clicking OK.
msinfo32 /categories +all -loadedmodules
Could this be of any help to me?
