Well, my computer suffered severe malware attacks before I received it. I actually received it for free for me to fix. After fixing it I decided to keep it for myself, it was perfectly fine. I also got Microsoft Office 2007 installed on it (legally of course with a CD-Key). No problems occurred whatsoever until one day when running Disk Cleanup a window appeared saying, "Files that are required for Windows to run properly have been replaced by unrecognized versions. To maintain system stability, Windows must restore the original versions of these files. ----Insert your Windows XP Professional CD-ROM now." [Options: Retry-More Information-Cancel]. I do not have a Windows XP CD-ROM because I fixed the computer manually, thus I cannot simply enter it and retry. So I am forced to Cancel and keep the unrecognized versions.

 

This was the only thing that happened and no side effects were noticable so I left it. Another couple of months passed and I got the morbid blue shut-down screen.....3 times in 1 week. I am not smart enough to know what to do in that situation so I kept working as I needed to finish some work on the computer hoping to get back to it later.

 

Then one day I realized that my Quick Launch Toolbar was not working (I would click the icons and nothing would happen). This was always my preferred method. So after that not working I double-clicked on my Fire Fox desktop Shortcut Icon. Nothing happened except the icon going semi-translucent. I found the only way to open programs was to right-click and click open (Not even clicking them from the start menu works). Please note that if I had a folder or PNG file on my desktop I could open it with ease, just not programs such as My Computer, Fire Fox, Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player, Etc. Even programs that I downloaded separate from Windows programs.

 

I did some quick Google searches and figured I had a problem with my registry. I don't have enough training to mess with any of that. So I downloaded CCleaner, ran it, cleaned everything, apparently fixed all registry problems, I downloaded an Anti-Virus program that said my computer was clean of any viruses and everything I knew to do. I even tried System Restore (Which I also had to Right-Click and open as well) but to no avail (It would run and say it was unsuccessful and that no changes were made).

 

I tried a Clean Boot, I tried EVERYTHING I could find on Google...thus, links to other sites/forums will most likely not be very helpful. I need help. This isn't a SERIOUS problem....yet....but it is VERY ANNOYING. If anyone could shed light on this, please do. Here is my HiJackThis File....

Also, when I try to uninstall certain programs from the Control Panel- Add/Remove Programs it will not allow me. I assume this is also due to my registry. I have no clue how to fix any of this and am definitely NOT computer literate enough to be able to fix this on my own....yet. I'm sure just about any information will help.

 

Thanks.

I see that you said you do not have a Windows XP cd. Do you have access to one at all? Is there a friend that has one you could borrow?

Possibly...I could ask around. If I did happen to get my hands on one, how would I fix this problem? And is there a way to fix it without the CD (I'm assuming not besides Clean Install, which I am refraining from doing)?

 

Thank you,

I found a friend who has the Windows XP Recovery CDs (I think 12 total). It's basically a Clean Install....that wouldn't happen to help would it? It needs to be the one CD for Windows XP, correct?

Recovery cd's only work for the pc that they are made to recover for....ie: a set of recovery disks for a compaq A1234Z computer will only work on that specific computer

There are some exceptions to that. Some older Dell pc's came with windows XP disks that were actually windows xp install disks with a Dell label on it. You can still find some of these disks on ebay

The installation files may have been copied to the hard disk. Open Search If Search doesn't open in advanced mode, click All files and folders.

 

Type *.DL_ as the file name. Select Local Hard Drives in Look in. Under More advanced options, select "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search subfolders".

 

If you find over 1400 matching files in a folder, that folder likely contains all the installation files. When prompted by Windows File Protection (WFP) for a location, browse to the folder.

 

If about 1200 or fewer files are in one folder, you've probably found service pack files. If WFP doesn't find a suitable file in the installation folder, browse to the service pack folder (this folder might not be present)..

One of the CDs may be an XP installation disk. Do any of them contain an I386 folder will over 5000 files and folders?

I am not sure. I would have to look through them. My friend just said they had those CDs. Once I borrow them and look through them I will let you know. But I highly doubt one would be an XP CD seeing as they are recovery CDs.

 

Thanks for replying everyone.

Search does not open

Use Agent Ransack for file searches.

 

www.mythicsoft.com/page.aspx?type=agentransack&page=home

 

Windows Search has a standard mode, titled "What do you want to search for?", that presents a series of prompts, and an advanced mode, titled ""Search by any or all of the criteria below", that allows you to set up the specifics manually. When in standard mode, click "All files and folders" for "advanced" mode: when in advanced mode, click "Other search options", or "Start a new search", or "Back", for standard mode.

I used the search program you suggested and only got 40 results. Probably not a good sign....(I checked the box to search in subfolders too....however, since I don't use this search program I'm not sure if I truly search everywhere or not).

 

 

Just tell the op to get a copy of xp himself

I went to the link you provided and still didn't get how I would go about doing this. Could you please explain?

 

Thanks all,

What make and model is the computer? Possibly it has a recovery partition with installation files, or at least the ability to restore the system to just-shipped condition.

Windows XP Professional SP3: HP Media Center m1070n

Power up the computer and, when the logo screen appears, tap F10 until "Starting PC Recovery" is displayed. If you do not see this, then the master boot record (MBR) has been replaced (this can probably be fixed), or the recovery partition has been deleted (not fixable).

 

If recovery is functional, I suggest using the Advanced > Destructive Recovery option. Be sure to back up your user data (e-mail, pictures, music,documents, etc.) beforehand, as the Windows partition is ersaed during the process.

As I said before, I would rather refrain from going down this road...Not saying I won't, but if there is another way besides this I would rather try that first.

 

I think I may have found a Windows XP CD. Earlier you guys were telling me to get one. What do I do once I have that?

 

Thanks,

with a windows disk, you can preform a system repair or better yet, a clean install. Always back up your docs, photo's and anything else you want to keep in case the repair install goes wrong, or with a clean install.

Here's a guide to do a repair install

http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

 

If you go for a clean install, it's a good idea to get all of the necessary drivers downloaded from HP first and have then on a disk, flash drive or some other type of external media.

I would rather refrain from going down this road..

Why? You'd have a pristine, uncorrupted copy of Windows — and more important, a good Registry, which WFP and SFC (System File Checker) cannot provide. You could, however, start a nondestructive standard recovery from the initial menu.

Regarding the XP CD, it must be an OEM version of XP Professional with Service Pack 2 or newer. For identification, check the CD for a file in the form of WIN51IP.SP?, where win51ip means XP Pro, and ? is a digit indicating the integrated service pack.

An XP CD serves as the source of files for WFP and SFC, provided that the CD contains SP3 (if not, you can download SP3, extract the files, and use those as a source). You can also repair the Windows installation which, unlike WFP and SFC, also repairs the Registry.
