when I open I get a pop up message from Windows XP Set up stating - Please go to Control Panel to install and confiure system components. When I go to Control Panel I cannot find anything like this, being a 'thickie' I would like to know what must I do now to resolve this message.
Zeppelyn - Once my Desk top is showing on start up the message comes up in a rectangular box with a dark blue border at the top containing the words 'Windows XP Set Up' and the words of the message - Please go to Control Panel to install and configure system components . This stays on screen until I manually remove it
To add system components in XP. Go to control panel, click on add/remove programmes, then down the left hand side you will see add/ remove windows components, click on this and it will bring up a list of what components you have installed and give you the option of installing more ( you will need the XP disk) which ones you need I have no idea.Hope this helps,Trev.
I think that I have forwarded a reply to you by e-mail, you can tell what sort of a thickie I am, I am going away for a weeks holiday and leaving this off until Tuesday, 22nd August. Will try again on my return. Cheers
By email 'Have tried to go 'System Restore' but cannot go out of July although I have tried many different dates. XP was installed about 2 years ago and this trouble started about the end of June, hope that helps'
