Corrupted Windows System File Tags: Internet Explorer System File System Restore Windows XP Last response: December 5, 2006 9:43 AM in Windows XP Share Bache December 5, 2006 4:51:34 AM If there was a corrupted system file or it had been accidently deleted, would system restore replace this file (if you had a backup). Is there a way to have the OS WinCD search for any of the above and replace these files? Would you have to boot from the WinCD, or could it be done from within windows ie. while windows was running, insert the WinCD in DVD Drive and run from there? What is the proceedure steps? Thanks, More about : corrupted windows system file Anonymous December 5, 2006 9:43:11 AM You could try "sfc" from a command prompt or a Repair installation of XP but I don't think System Recovery will restore a corrupted system file. Grumpy P.S. I personaly believe System Restore was one of Microsoft's worst ideas (along with msconfig). They are completely misunderstood and misused. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
