Creating windows XP repair disc

I have windows XP, but do not have any operating System CD or system Restore CD, how do I create an operating / repair CD in the event of any system crashes.

If your PC did not come with a recovery CD, it usually means that there is a partition on your hard drive which contains the necessary files to recover from any crashes. On 'My Computer' you should be able to see any recovery partition.

Thanks for the help, this is what's listed under "My Computer"

I suggest you get a backup program, here are a few (untested by me) that may help.

For a more reliable backup use a USB or another harddrive to connected to you macking.

Thx for all the help, my computer knowledge is very basic, can I just confirm if I download one of those programmes and my computer crashes / breaks, do I simply install the CD with a programme above to repair / fix it?

Best way is while system is working as it should, Create a Image with Acronis True Image save to a external drive so it can be restored if you have any problems with the drive including virus
