XP Repair install

Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below
This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
Windows XP to run on your computer:

To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

Press Enter to start the Windows Setup. do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, read this Warning#2!
Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.

This is just a shot in the dark here. But if you have a computer, such as an "Hewlitt Packard", your OS back-up is on your hard-drive. You just need to copy it to cd or dvd and use it to re-install your operating system.

That is assuming your friend knows what he is talking about.

You can always try to uninstall and see if that fixes the problem. Then, find a new antivirus like avast4home.

I'm not sure what language you are trying to use. That may cause issues. Avast 4 home lets you choose software based on the language you are used to.

It's late, and I may not be seeing something that Warez Monster is though, (probably the case). Still.......it cannot hurt.

P.S. Warez...............That is the coolest freakin' Avatar I have ever seen. Should you want to add me to your X-Mas list.........that Avatar would make a super present! heh, heh.
