  1. Go Start then Run and type into the following into the box, including the space sfc /scannow then hit Enter. The System File Checker will run through and find copies of any missing files. Have your XP CD handy - it may be needed.

    Usually at least once a week. :D

    Have you emptied the Recycle Bin since deleting this file? If you haven't it will be there and you can restore it. If it's really gone, download Recuva from http://www.piriform.com and/or Restoration2514 from http://www.win-freeware.com/REST2514.htm and see what they can find. REST2514 might be better - you can specify a filename in there.

    I repair other peoples' PCs. :D My own systems don't give me any problems - especially the Linux ones.
