"Missing" Help and Service and System Restore

  kenneth-204108 15:36 24 Mar 2004

I have just gone onto broadband,which may or may not be the cause of my problem.
I have had advice, which I have followed to the letter and it has been a nearly but not quite.
My problem is my Microsoft XP programme was already installed.
I cannot find a way to reload these two programmes. Could some kind person please tell me how[if is possible] to do it?
Thanks in anticipation

Click OK to open the INF folder.

Locate the file pchealth.inf .

Right-click the file, and then click Install . This will reinstall the files that Search needs to proceed normally.

You will be asked to place your windows XP cd rom in the drive.
