    Use the following procedure to correct Windows XP system files.

    Go to Start > Run and type: CMD , and hit enter. In the resulting
    Command Prompt window, type: SFC /SCANNOW , and hit enter.
    You may be prompted to insert your Windows XP CD in the CD Drive.

    SFC = System File Checker. SFC will scan your system and replace
    missing or damaged XP system files with the correct version.

    Nice article! How deeply does explicit SFC check (content corruption
    via MD5 or just correct size, version tab etc.?)

    Does it compare against the cache copy?

    Does it have an awareness of ChkDsk / AutoChk, i.e. that if one of
    these "fixes" a protected file, the damaged file should be replaced?

    Does it have an awareness of av software, so that if av "cleans" a
    protected file, the damaged file should be replaced?

    Outside of these, content checking's required, in cases where RAM
    errors bonk the file when moving it during defrag, or when a deranged
    write splats stuff over the file, even though the file was never
    "opened for writes" or "opened for read/writes" (i.e. hooking into
    these known file-changers isn't enough).

    Milton,

    If the issue occurred after installing KB873333, then take a look at
    this MSKB article :
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/894391
    The link to the fix is under " Windows XP, 32-bit versions ".
