Default Cannot access System Restore in XP Pro, it crashes.

If I try to acess System Restore in any way I get a crash saying something like "Run DLL as an APP has encountered a problem". Is there anyway to reinstall System Restore function from the XP CD, I didn't see anything for it under add/remove windows components. Or any ideas why it's doing this or a possible fix?

Yup. Click Start, Run and type %Windir%\INF
Locate the SR.INF file. The file may be shown as SR, if you have configured Windows Explorer to hide known file extensions. To see the file extensions for all file types, then try this:
On the Tools menu in My Computer, click Folder Options.
Click the View tab.
Clear the Hide extensions for known file types check box.
Right-click the SR.INF file, and then click Install
Windows will now attempt to reinstall System Restore, and may prompt you for the Windows installation source path. Point to %Windir%\ServicePackFiles folder, or insert your slipstreamed Windows XP (matching the Service Pack level of your system.)
System Restore core files will be reinstalled. Restart Windows when prompted.

You should come here when you type that in

C:\WINDOWS\INF

Hey Warez, my slipstreamed CD is only SP1, and the system that I am having the problem on is running SP2. If it asks for the CD will this pose a problem? If so, I'll just make another XP pro CD and slipstream the SP2 on it. Prefer not to, but let me know.

Bump.

Should I go ahead and try this even if my XP Pro CD is only slipstreamed with SP1? The system was updated manually to SP2, but initially installed on a XP Pro disk without EITHER Service pack. I'll hold off attempting anything until I hear back...

Thanks

hehe Yep, I was just being lazy, and down to my last 2 CDR's

Just checking to make sure I even need too.

I'll make a follow up after it's done.

Yes, I still have SP2 downloaded as an .exe file on my 2nd PC. Does SP2 also contain SP1? I'm assuming it does.

Ok Warez, I slipstreamed SP2 on the CD, CD looks good, but when I do install it asks for sr.sys file, I point it towards the XP CD and it does not find it. Actually, it asks for a "Service Pack 2 disk", are you sure it works via a slipstreamed disk? Any help appreciated. I did a manual search of the CD for sr.sys and it did not locate it.

Ignore my last post, WarezMonster. You rock, it worked When I explored the CD the file was hidden so I did not see it, but it was in the i386 directory. I pointed the install towards the directory, rebooted, and worked great. Again, thanks for all your help and patience.
