Download the Bootdisk Set
from Microsoft (be sure to get the one for your operating system) and create the startup disk set. Use these and your cd to do this REPAIR
to your installation of XP. This procedure will not damage or change your current files or settings...it will just repair or replace damaged or incorrect system files. You will be asked for your Installation CD and may be asked for your product key. Follow the instructions carefully...print them out if you can. Note: This option is not always available on OEM Recovery Cd'sOnce this repair has completed, you will have to download all Windows Updates again.
Let us know how it goes...
