After uninstalling JamCam digital camera software (coincidence?), a message appeared on my screen, reading: "Windows File Protection Files that are required for Windows to run properly have been replaced by unrecognized versions. To maintain system stability, Windows must restore the original versions of these files. Insert your Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 CD now." When I clicked for more information, one "possible reason for for this problem is; the CD-Rom drive in your system is not functioning". How can I determine if it is or is not functioning?
I attempted to uninstall SP2, with the intention of reinstalling it. When trying to uninstall it in Add/Remove Programs, this message appeared: "The system cannot find the file specified". Then, "The Service Pack 2 was not uninstalled". Someone advised me to ensure that "Show Updates" button is checked". Tried this-still no luck.
Any helpful suggestions would be appreciated.
