Requires Operating System Disc to be inserted in PC to be carried out. As we now have SP2 installed, is there any point in 'sfc /scannow' being used as a trouble-shooting exercise? There is after all a 3-4 year gap between the original XP OS and the SP2 update. Or have Microsoft cleverly done the biz in the update that still makes the check valid?
Been trying to find the answer to this for a week or so now. I read somewhere that when SP2 is installed, the .inf files, (the ones that tell SFC where to get copies from), are modified so that SFC goes to the ServicePack Folder first to find the relevant files. (The ServicePack Folder is inside the Windows Folder.)
