You can use this tool Slipstream a copy of XP, that way if you have all present updates and Service Packs, you wont need to download and re install them.

If you need to replace files you can borrow a same version as was originally installed XP CD

If you need to repair then you can do the same but need to enter your product key

You mean that if i know someone with a XP Pro CD that I could run on my puter and pick out what i want to install like the fax program which im missing,could I also burn a copy of his XP CD and use it in my puter with my product key which i have.

You can use the other CD to get the fax files, which will only work with dial up

You can contact Microsoft for a replacement CD

You will probably be better to use a back up programme to make an image of your drive
