Repairing windows xp home edition

  MIKE 21:57 27 Oct 2006

I have lost my audio control file(it appears to have been deleted) so I was thinking of using my windows cd to repair the windows os. I have been informed that it is better to reinstall windows as I am likely to get problems if I just repair it.
has anybody any experiance or advice in this matter? I'd be grateful for any comments

Why not just reload the sound drivers

PS windows will not repair AUDIO if it's Sound Driver Problem

what about system restore or am i reading the post wrong?

Thanks for yor comments Woodchip but I don't think it's a driver problem as I can get the sound using the mute and volume keys on the keyboard but have no visual means by way of my moniter so I think I will have to bite the bullet and try to repair it first.
Thanks also to Strawballs about the IE 7 info as I have it installed

I only think I have Ie 7 Strawballs, do you know how I find out, I know it proberbly sounds daft but I can't seen to find out and can't remember if I have updated it ir not, many thanks for info

sorry for being a thicko VoG but although I've found it in Explorer I still have no idea what version it is. I clicked on properties and it tells me nothing regarding what issue it is any idea how to find out, thanks
