Have you made any changes to things recently?

Have you checked your system for viruses and spyware?

You need to have a full XP disk is that what you've got? Or is it just a service pack 2 disk?

its ok i solved the problem, the problem was that my stupid CD drive didnt read the disc properly so i had to venture into the files and then put my old windows xp home edition CD in and had to getfiles out of there, i ended up using my CD RW, i need to change the CD when i get the time lol, thanks for help!
