best bet i can offer is to run sfc with your xp disk and see if that helps, failing that run a repair from the disk

Thank for reply JR What is sfc

Start, Run, type in

sfc /scannow

and click OK. You may be asked for your Windows CD.

I tried what you suggested VoG & got a message that windows cannot find sfc can you help

  VoG II 00:15 23 Sep 2004

Is this Windows XP? If it is ME there is no sfc :o(
