It seems to be a little faster, at the start. But is still unresponsive from what i checked into. I still cant download any of your links from this thread. If i click any of your links to download it to my desktop, it brings me to a blank page. At the top of the page i get the drop down security warning that IE blocked the site from downloading.... then if i right click the drop down for my options, i click download and it wont download, i just get the blank page, and nothing happens. The only thing different is the speed at the start up, but then i get into using applications, or links and slows down again.

OK. We will do system repair. Don't worry system repair won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system!
Please, have your Windows XP CD-KEY ready.

  • Boot from your Windows XP CD. Insert the Windows XP CD into your computer's CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer.
  • When the "Press any key to boot from CD" message appears on the screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

    NOTE: If computer does not boot from CD you must change device boot order in BIOS. Read here for more information.

  • A blue screen will appear and begin loading Windows XP Setup from the CD.
  • When completed loading files, you will be presented with the following "Windows Setup" screen, and your first option. Select "To set up Windows XP now, press ENTER". DO NOT select Recovery Console.

  • When presented with the screen below. press the F8 key to continue.

    Posted Image

  • Next, Windows Setup will find existing Windows XP installations. You will be asked to repair an existing XP installation, or install a fresh copy of Windows XP.
  • Press the R key.

  • Windows XP will appear to be installing itself for the first time, but it will retain all of your data and settings.
  • Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to reinstall Windows XP. After you repair Windows XP, you may have to reactivate your copy of Windows XP.

Let me know results.

Usually copy errors are a symptom of either bad media/drive or RAM.

As to what the file is it's actually a file called segment5.swf which is part of the XP tour a flash based intro/help for XP not critical at all. So skip it.
