I had to use my recovery CD that came with my computer to get rid of viruses. Now I am back at square one with Windows XP....just like it came with my computer back in 2002. I am trying to update windows XP. A message pops up and states "unregmp2.exe - no disk". I push CONTINUE and then a message comes up and asks me to insert the windows disk in drive A. I don't have the Windows XP disk because it was pre-loaded on my computer when I bought it. I know there is a "virtual" image of the Windows XP disk on my C: drive in I386 files. How do I get it to recognize the files in my C: drive instead of asking the disk to be inserted into A:drive? UGH!!! I really need help!!!

Here's a quote from a source I copied a while ago but can't remember where:

'I received a reponse from Microsoft that worked.
When the problem occurs, press Shift +F10 to bring up the
command prompt. Then type taskmgr.exe in the DOS window
and press Enter. The Task Manager should be started. If
not, try to press Ctrl+Shift+ESC. In the Task Manager
program, select the error messsage window in the
application list and click "End Task". In the process
list, terminate the unregmp2.exe program. Exit the DOS
prompt window and resume the installation process.
