No, this is in case "sfc" asks you for the CD.
If it finds bad, or missing file, it will.

Nope. You need Windows CD.

Broni,
Do I go ask someone to borrow a "Windows CD" or a "Windows XP CD"? If I can't borrow one, can I buy one at a Best Buy, etc?

I'm currently back to working with the Malware folks.

Oh, why is that?

It must be Windows XP CD, and same version as you have (Home, or Pro)
You surely can buy one. It's very handy to have one. I'm not sure though, what store do have it, since it's more like Vista, Windows 7 time. Call around.

Malware was prematurely closed. Contacted Hammerman to advise unable to run requested screen print. Malware reopened topic with additional instructions.

If I'm unable to find/borrow/steal Windows XP CD are we stuck with no solution?

Well, let's not use crystal ball, and let's see what will happen, when you come out from malware forum.

Finishing up with Malware first sounds like a good plan. In the interim I'll see if I can find a Windows XP CD

I have taken the following actions:
Uninstalled Avira Free
Installed Avast
Installed Spyware Blaster (I do not plan on installing Spyware Guard)

One thing I note (for what it's worth, if anything) when I am downloading these programs and the message says if download does not start press here - I always have to "press here". Also on downloading software from a CD I always have to go to Start - Run - and enter setup.exe to get the software to run. Could this be some sort of issue with the CD drive not recognizing the disc when I'm trying to burn a CD?

You shouldn't be making any changes to your computer, while you have malware thread active.

No malware found and advised to return to you for problem resolution.

Here is current status - operating in Normal Mode, F drive (new burner) works fine. E drive will now produce a blue screen memory dump when a CD is inserted into it at any time.

Suggestions?
