if you have the xp disk, go to start/run and type in sfc /scannoww and insert disk when asked, this will replace any corrupt files and may solve your prob.

Have just spoken to Evesham who say I have no alternative than to rinstall windows! please tell me this is not the only option!

I only have a restore disk, Evesham have a system called PC Angel which is what they were suggesting I use, this comes pre installed I believe, I asked them about just going over the current windows but they said I would still lose everthing! is this not correct? your help is much valued.
