If it continues until you get the desktop, click start then run, type sfc /scannow and press enter to replace the system files

If they were critical the installation should stop

I ran sfc /scannow, the program scanned, and scanned and..... and didn't fail or anything. just closed when finished.

am I clear to continue?
does anyone know what they are for?
and will they cause problems by being missing?

The system file check would have replaced them from the CD

System File Checker gives an administrator the ability to scan all protected files to verify their versions. If System File Checker discovers that a protected file has been overwritten, it retrieves the correct version of the file from the cache folder (%Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache) or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file. System File Checker also checks and repopulates the cache folder. You must be logged on as an administrator or as a member of the Administrators group to run System File Checker. If the cache folder becomes damaged or unusable, you can use the sfc /scannow, the sfc /scanonce, or the sfc /scanboot commands to repair its contents.

Run Microsoft Update, which won't run if necessary files are missing
