Loss of System Tools / Windows Restore from WXP

  [DELETED] 17:14 08 May 2006


Have discovered that the contents of Accessories/System Tools has mysteriously all but vanished (only I/E (no add ons) remains. Consequently I cannot create Restore Points.

When I tried to look on the XP installation disk to see if just Accessories only could br loaded. A message appeared saying that 'Setup could not continue because the version of Windows on my computer is newer than that on the CD. If you decide to delete the newer version of Windows that is currently installed on your computer, the files & settings cannot be recovered'

Could the detection of SP2 be triggering this message, as that is the only thing I can think of that is different since the original installation ? If this is the case, is it safe for mr to proceed ?

Is it possible to select just one part of XP (Accessories) or can one only do a full installation ?

Appreciation to anyone who tries to help me.
