unstable xp

  saddler-1962 20:28 04 Feb 2009

have recently had that ms antispyware virus and unfortunately somehow managed to screw up xp. everytime i start up it says files are missing and asks for disc to be inserted. Heres my problem, since moving house i cant find my original windows disc. have tried another copy but it comes up this is not the disc originally used. Any way round this apart from a complete re formating??????

I would recommend you back up your files and do a complete re-install. In all honesty a repair install will only patch things up until the next thing goes wrong. With a fresh install, you know it's going to *stable*.
