I've gotten myself into the admin position and thought I was gold after that but am now finding that there are many large network related things on here that I know nothing about and am beginnning to wonder if I should just start over with a storebought XP home OS and give up on this XP pro OS.
Since I do not have installation disks I know that a clean reinstall is not gonna happen but I wondered if I could get XP Pro to restore itself to new condition from the setup files or something like that. The lack of disks is becoming an issue for updates, and if it ever really crashes I know I may be buying a new OS anyway.
The main problem is my unfamilarity with XP. All in all it is now working ok, but this is supposed to become my elderly mother's comp, and I'm not sure about letting it loose on her.
